Tyra Banks Is Set To Graduate From Harvard Business School!

| Filed under: Tyra BanksBusiness Blitz

Tyra Ivy League

Quite the achievement!!

Tyra Banks has conquered both runways and television… but now she's conquering Harvard!!

So why did she decide to do it?

Let her tell you why:

"There's a difference between a career and a business. I'm not looking to build a company based on fans. Don't chase the money, even if you want to be a banker. Chase the passion. Chase the dream."

She also says who she is on Next Top Model is a character, that she isn't that tough in real life. But she'd love to be:

"[I] would love to have her in the boardroom. I wish I was hard…I have armor, but a strategic knife can still get in those creases."

You're selling yourself short! We bet you could be that kind of person!

Especially now that you've been to Harvard to learn how!

That's a huge accomplishment, Tyra! Congrats!

    Congrats to her! I'ts easier for people to write off successful black people in the entertainment industry because that's what "they" are good at, but I'm happy to see Tyra refusing to settle on "just" a hugely successful modeling career followed by her massive business/entertainment success. We need more black people in places like Harvard (and yes, I'm sure the little racist shitscum will be here in minutes, threatened little dicks hiding behind a computer screen LOL). Curious to see what's next for her.

    What does conquering Harvard mean? I would like to know what type of degree she got, or whether it was a special short program? Good for her either way, but she shouldn't be compared to a full Harvard graduate unless she actually is one.

    Lets be clear here. she is not getting a degree from Harvard. She paid 31K for a three week course that anyone can attend. She did not pass an entrance exam, or get accepted to harvard.

    Now all she needs is a personality. She is not a nice person. Very self-centered and rude and stuck on herself.

  5. 5

    Inaccurate headlne. She completed Harvard's version of a continuing ed program, done in a few three-week sessions. Very nice for her, but not a Harvard graduate.

    Re: KimberellaRe: Glen – A three week session?? That's it. Ok, so am I to assume that it was more about image than education?

    Re: Glen – Thank you for this, I have a couple of Masters degrees. I would have loved to have gotten them from Harvard. I could not have gotten in or afforded Harvard even with loans. I could however take a 3wk or 6wk "Harvard" course online in public administration, business etc. It does not give me Harvard credits or a Harvard degree. I appreciate that she is trying to better herself, and it such a better role model than some others but if you misrepresent it, it is arrogant.

    and still no one wants to marry her…………

    Re: suckitracistscum – especially when that black person has tons of money and can pay their entire tuition in full up front……no that didn't have anything to do with her getting in at all…….also they can use her celebrity status to their advantage in the future, but I am sure she is really smart and got in for that reason…..NOT!

    Re: suckitracistscum – by the way……YOUR ARE AN IDIOT!

    Re: triple M – by the way…… You're the worse troll ever! Give it up….

  12. 12

    COMMENTS ON AGAIN,,,Cincinnatti High School Paying Kids To Come To Class" HEY DICKHEAD why do you ask "Do U think this program is a good idea? " and then turn "COMMENTS OFF" i'm just wondering.

  13. 13

    Re: suckitracistscum – um, you're the only one talking about race. why is that?

  14. 14

    PEEREX, you're mis-representing the FACTS AGAIN. your headline and story implys that she is getting an MBA from harvard, that just is NOT THE CASE. you continue to suck up to everyone who you think may do you some good, not to mentions those that pay the most. as my grand daughter used to say "LIAR, LIAR,, PANTS ON FIRE"

  15. 15

    not the first time someone has bought a degree …

  16. 16

    Ya, ok. She couldn't pass at any JC let alone Harvard. She's a tool.

  17. 17

    Sort of like Keith Olbermann claiming to have graduated from Yale,
    when in reality, he attended the Yale Locksmithing class

  18. 18

    Well, she doesn't even have a bachelor's degree, so there is no way she is graduating from HBS.
    It amazes me that women like her have successful tv programs, who watches this garbage?

  19. 19

    Re: MR Pete – yeah or like AL WHORE inventing the internet. lies are bad enough, but STUPID lies are worse.and willy " i never had sexual relations with that woman" Clitoris

    I was so wrong there is no way I could enter this program. The ONLY requirement for the program is that you are an exec of something and you have 5mil capitol. You do not get an MBA. It only meets a a few times a year ($33,000 a meeting no Harvard credit) and it is not and MBA, it is a part of their business school but is about(executive) "team building" and working w/ people, there is no degree attached. When Tyra is asked about it and people say it is and MBA, she says "I don't know what it is called". So the the owner of a large corp. would send their CEO or someone who wanted to say they went to Harvard business school

    Re: flwergal – I agree and wonder who watches these types of shows too. Must be a whole bunch of idiots in the world. No one I know watches such crap.

  22. 22

    When it's all over, as it will be for all of us, Tyra will be home, alone, counting her money! This girl will never find find love, because she kills every relationship with the opening line "I don't need you…."

  23. 23

    don't respect her degree!
    wasn't earned!
    she told us on a TV show that she didn'thave to take call the courses/classes
    she was given massive credit for her life experiences and for her show America's Next Top Model
    so it appears that sometimes rich & famous people not only get a free ride in the justice system
    they can also get a free ride in the education system
    is this how James Franco is getting his degrees too?
    by not showing up at all the classes, not turning in each and every assignment for the full 3 to 4 years like Tyra

    Re: *Sloane – But in the end Sloane, people who work for their degrees, have learned something and are a lot smarter than those who get the degree "for free".

    Re: Glen – That's what I thought. Thanks for clearing that up.

  27. 27

    Re: Honor – You are correct, the course doesn't really have a name just for so called business executives and it isn't even 3 weeks. It meets once for 33, ooo I looked it up too. She said it was "damn hard" it is team building no classes. Wow, that is truly sad and pathetic.

    Tyra is a stuck up ande Bitch.Did'nt her talk show get cancelled and the ratings for herother show are taking a dive down.If the public is lucky we will not be seeing her on TV much longer.

  29. 29

    Well, phew.
    I'm glad Glen, and a few others on here have cleared up the details on this one.
    Was having an really tough time wrapping my head around someone gaining a Harvard Business degree while hosting a television show.
    I mean, there's smart, and there's SMART, and there's UBER-SMART, but no matter how bloody smart you are, there just aren't enough hours in the day.
    Kudos to all of those who actually HAVE graduated Harvard.
