From slaying catwalks with ease to teaching other young hopefuls how to break into the modeling world to New York Times best-selling author to boss chick mogul status, Tyra Banks has done it all. However, the 42-year-old mother shows no signs of slowing down. Between juggling her bouncing bundle of joy York and expanding her cosmetics line, Banks is adding yet another notch on her list of achievements.

How does Professor Banks sound? Well, after enrolling in a nine-week business program at Harvard in 2011 and earning a certificate for completing their Executive Education Training Program, the multi-hyphenate is moving onto teaching. Banks recently announced that she will be a guest lecturer at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business next May, co-teaching alongside Allison D. Kluger, 25 MBA students how to shape their personal brand. With her own brand boasting of the term mogul, the model will assist in helping students develop media personas via traditional and modern techniques, similar to America’s Next Top Model “image transformations,” according to the course’s syllabus.

In addition to being fierce and flexible when handling the ups and downs of business, students will present their personal brands on three platforms: YouTube, Facebook Live, and local television.

“If I see somebody not paying attention, I’m gonna call on them,” Banks told Wall Street Journal. And if she’s even a hint as passionate as she was with gals and guys of ANTM, this is bound to be an insightful journey for students.
