Tyra Banks: I'm A Harvard Business School Student

Tyra Banks makes an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Monday (March 14) in New York City.

The 37-year-old former model recently revealed she’s been attending Harvard Business School since last year!

“In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best. So I went to the best,” she told CBS News.

Tyra also talked about retiring from the runway in 2005.

“I don’t think me walking away from modeling was scary for me. In hindsight, I think it was very risky, when you talk about risk. Because it paid the bills … [but] it paid off. You know, of course, in hindsight, everything is like ‘I was so smart.’ But just in hindsight. It was kind of throwing all my eggs in one basket,” she said.

FYI: Tyra is wearing an alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Ruby Embellished Circular Shrug and a Corey Lynn Calter jumpsuit!

Tyra is going to HBS’s Owner/President Management Program. ANYONE who is an owner of a profitable company can take the program, provided that you went and got your undergraduate education somewhere and have the $$$ to take the classes.

She should clarify that she is not a full HBS MBA student which actually have admissions criteria and stringent acceptance standards.

What a tool this woman is :-/

wait isnt an undergrad degree required….

Keep hatin’, haters. Tyra Banks has an annual income of $30 million. She created a television program in its tenth season with version in multiple countries all over the world.

She’s accomplished more in her professional 20 year career than most models. Now, she enrolled in a program SPECIFICALLY for CEOs and owners of large companies at Harvard.

For those who think being a snot-nosed MBA student at Harvard who will be hired to work with someone for 100K after graduation means anything, think again.

She is successful, beautiful, smart, and RICH.

seriously how does TYRA BANKS= INTELLECT (even in model standards which are quite low)? this woman’s spotlight grabbing is starting to work on my nerves

Jeb Hunter @ 03/15/2011 at 1:15 pm

She’s in the OPM Program that ANY successful business owner can attend………LA Reid attended this part time staggered program and I don’t think he has a BA degree.

It’s continuing education…….. not HBS proper.

More smoke and mirrors from the Hollywood set.

Jeb Hunter, thanks for clarifying. Aren’t NFL players taking this courses too?

She is one of these people who will be just as ugly when they are older as they were beautiful when young. Another is Angelina Jolie. I think she will be really hideous in her older years. Plus, Tyra is ashamed of who she is. She always wears hair hats.
