A huge congratulations goes out to Tyra Banks! The model and entertainment mogul graduated from Harvard Business School earlier this month.
Tyra graduated on February 17 with a certificate from the school’s Owner/President Management Program, which is designed specifically for entrepreneurs.
And she lived the college life while she attended the school. Students enrolled in the 3 year program must stay on campus and live in dorm rooms, something Tyra did while completing the program in 3-week sessions of study.
As the owner of media company Bankable Enterprises, Tyra spoke on her decision to attend Harvard, “Iâ€™m not looking to build my company based on fans.”
She also commented on comparison’s to Oprah Winfrey‘s empire, “The comparisons are extremely flattering, impossible to live up to and inconsistent with my goals.”
Earlier in the week, Tyra posted photos on her Twitter of her graduation day.
One of Tyra’s marketing professors is writing a case study on Bankable Enterprises, so she will now become part of the class’ curriculum. In the meantime, another cycle of “America’s Next Top Model” begins next week.
Congratulations to Tyra! See more pictures from her graduation and time at Harvard below.
