Everyone's favorite supermodel-turned-entrepreneur has a new and very prestigious role to add to her resume. Tyra Banks is set to appear as a guest lecturer during the spring 2017 semester at Stanford University's Graduate School of Business for a class on building a personal brand—something the 42-year-old multihyphenate has plenty of experience with.

The course, which is titled "Project You: Building and Extending your Personal Brand," will be co-taught by Banks and faculty member Allison Kluger. According to the course's official description, the former America's Next Top Model host will use her expertise to help students "create their own specific image to support their brand, teach them how to navigate on-air exposure, and help them create a long-term strategy for how to promote their personal brand across several media platforms."

We couldn't help but notice there's no mention of a smizing workshop ...

"If I see somebody not paying attention, I'm gonna call on them," Banks told The Wall Street Journal. The only reason people will be allowed to use their phones is to "tweet something I've said," she added, jokingly.

Something tells us this class is going to fill up fast!
