From Top Model To Top MBA Program Professor
"America's Next Top Model" host, Tyra Banks, is transitioning from the runway to the classroom to co-teach a branding-based course through Stanford University's MBA program, a top five MBA program according to the U.S. News & World Report. The course, "Project You: Building and Extending Your Personal Brand," will focus on how best to strategically brand oneself via social media and television.
Benzinga polled followers to gauge their interest in the course. If given the option to enroll in Tyra's class, 85 percent said they would not. Stanford capped the class at 25 students, which means the 15 percent who expressed interest in the class would have relatively good odds of being chosen.
According to Time, "Students in the class will ultimately share their 'honed personal brand' through three platforms — Facebook Live, local television and YouTube — in an effort to jump-start their personal brand extension, according to the course description."
