The face of Webster University’s MBA program appears so happy and self-assured in the ads displayed at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. There she is, smiling confidently at the camera, her arms crossed boldly in front of her. Her gleaming image almost makes you want to join her and the other future business executives studying at Webster’s leafy campus in suburban St. Louis.
The only problem with that?
To find the woman in the ad you’d have to travel 120 miles west to the University of Missouri where Kholood Eid is pursuing a graduate degree in journalism and, until a friend passing through the airport sent her a text last month, had no idea her likeness was being used to sell Webster University. Since then, other friends have passed along photos of the ad via text messages and social media.
“It’s just weird,” says Eid. “You’d think that they’d inform me before using my photo. That and I never pursued an MBA from Webster University.”
