Tyra Graduated From Harvard Business School

Congratulations are in order for one Tyra Banks, who graduated Harvard Business School over the weekend. The supermodel-turned-TV-host told Bloomberg Businessweek that while in school, she learned how to apply a business model to her existing career.

“In second term we talked about a tactic that’s highly risky—you take such a leap forward in one direction that you burn the bridge to go backwards,” she told Bloomberg. “I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, is that what I did when I retired from modeling and walked off the Victoria’s Secret runway and told the entire world, ‘I am retired!’ before I even had my talk show renewed?’”

Yes. Yes, that is what you did. To great success.

She also said that the classes that intimidated her most were finance.

“For me, finance is intimidating. When the chalkboard starts to look like Einstein’s chalkboard, I’m like, ‘whoa!’”

    She did not graduate from HBS! She went into a certificate program for people with existing businesses and lots of money. She does not have an MBA.

      Benita- THANK YOU. She attended classes there and received a certificate. Anyone who can afford it can do this. She didn’t really “go to HBS”.

    She’s not the brightest bulb. Harvard like the publicity of giving out degrees to famous/rich people, that’s all.

  • ?

    She’s still an idiot.

  • Tyler Z.

    This is a joke. She did some executive education classes/seminars. She did not obtain an MBA from Harvard. This article and the marketing of this is so deceptive and pretentious.

  • A real hbs grad

    Please change your heading. It is FACTUALLY INCORRECT. She went to the exec program which is not referred to as “Harvard Business School” but rather “Harvard Executive Business Program.”
