Other forms: moguls
If you’re the type of person who likes to be in charge, you may have dreams of becoming a mogul — that is, a powerful businessperson.
The word mogul can refer to any powerful person — a studio mogul is a bigwig in the movie business, for example. The Mogul (or Mughal) Dynasty conquered India in the 16th century, and remained in power for hundreds of years. As a result, the word mogul became synonymous with "leader" or "ruler." A mogul is also a bump in a ski slope, but that root word is German.
