Tyra Banks Gets FAB For Wall Street NYSE, Talks Living In Harvard Business School Dorms

Tyra Banks is putting her Harvard Business School education to good use.  The new student donned her dance tights and nude short set and knee high boots to visit the New York Stock Exchange early this morning.

 

Pics of Tyra ringing the bell and promoting her new business venture--a fashion and beauty website called Type F.  And yes, F stands for Fierce.  Read on for pics and how she's doing with dorm life...

The fabulous Ms. Banks has been keeping a low profile the last few months while she spends time with her businessman boyfriend John and while she attends classes at Harvard Business School.

But this morning, she surfaced with her new short and dark hairstyle to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street in the financial district of Manhattan.

Her new Type F site offers beauty tips, makeup tips, and everything fierce and fabulous for women.  The "America's Next Top Model" head honcho is also in the midst of penning a book called MODELLAND.  I see Tyra stays on her grind.

She's looking fresh faced and revived as of late.

Congrats to Tyra!

She also hit Jimmy Fallon's show last night.  And she dished about living in the Harvard dorms--which is mandatory for all business school students.  She has her own bedroom, but the 37-year-old shares a living room, kitchen and study area.  Peep the vid:

Sorry no offense to Tyra but

Sorry no offense to Tyra but she is not the business on a real human level. No matter how much money she makes and what degree she purchase, Tyra is known 4 being not a nice person. And extremely stuck up and difficult ask a former employee. Being mean and demeaning is not necessary.

If you know anything about

If you know anything about Tyra, you know that she's a smart girl and was accepted at many prestigious universities. Her father wanted her to go to college and she chose to let school go and go to Paris and start her modeling career. Not a bad move for her, I would say. She's never been an air head and has always had some substance to her. Many schools have programs like this and this happens to be a prestigious one at Harvard. She had to be accepted into this program, she couldn't just walk up and say she was Tyra Banks. She owns her own business which was one of the criteria for the program. How anyone would try to knock or disparage her for this is really pathetic. I have a few degrees and yet I'm not yelling that this program doesn't compare to my Masters. Her goal is to be wealthy and not just rich, and she's making moves to make that happen.

Look at how the white

Look at how the white feminist groups protest Kanye West Monster video as soon as they see white woman portrayed negatively in a rap video. What have black women done the past 18 years black rappers have publicly bashed black women? DO NOT BUY THE MUSIC OF RAPPERS/SINGERS THAT DO NOT SUPPORT YOU. USE THE MONEY TO BUY THE MUSIC OF BLACK FEMALE ARTISTS LIKE MARSHA AMBROSIUS, JAZMINE SULLIVAN, LEDESI, ESPERANZA SPALDING ETC. The people that control the media do not want black women seen on TV in a positive light, and the black male rappers/singers are a part of this plot. This is why you hardly ever see black women looking classy in videos in 2011.. when that used to be normal back in the 80's. There is video footage of rappers/singers including CB, Fabolous, Trey S. saying that they have COMPLETE CONTROL over which women are picked to be in the videos and how they are presented. So they choose NOT to use black women, and on the rare occasion they use a TOKEN black female.... they make sure that she is on the sideline looking trashy and have the white,latina,brazilian females playing the LEADING LADY looking classy. All latinas, brazilians do NOT consider themselves black regardless of their ancestry. It's not for diversity not for diversity because... why don't they include latino,white, brazilian MEN??? BOYCOTT ALL PEPSI PRODUCTS LIKE AQUAFINA, MOUNTAIN DEW ETC. FOR THE RACIST SUPERBOWL PEPSI MAX COMMERCIAL. Look how they portrayed the dark black female as angry, jealous at a time you hardly see dark females in commercials. THINK. Lauryn Hill just started doing some promo shows and blogs are already portraying her in a negative light. Why don't they report how she thanked her fans, great performances etc. They don't want dark, natural conscious female artists to win. If you think she acts crazy... then why do you support Kanye West, 50, lil wayne, etc when they act crazy? CB was on twitter making jokes about dark skin ppl and dark skin girls. were saying he was only kidding. BE HONEST... if Rihanna or any light skin FEMALE artist made jokes on twitter about dark skin ppl for the world to see you would have bashed her for life. This is why black women do not get any respect from media,rappers etc. You NEVER hold black men accountable for anything. BOYCOTT CB, SLIM THUG,OCHO CINCO, FABOLOUS FOR LIFE. Look how black ppl are telling blk girls to forgive CB....CONDITIONING them to be future domestic violence victims. Do you think J LO, Paris Hilton, KIM KARDASHIAN PARENTS prepared them to accept/forgive abuse? CB is rich. Why don't you teach these blk girls to get their money/education and to NOT have premarital sex which can lead to pregnancy, hiv, AIDS etc. The media,rappers will continue to bash black women as long as you allow it. BOYCOTT EVERYTHING, USE YOUR MONEY TO SUPPORT BLACK FEMALE ARTISTS, BLACK FEMALE BIZ, ETC. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BLACK MALE RAPPERS/SINGERS GAVE AWAY BLACK MUSIC CULTURE ON A SILVER PLATTER. THEY DESTROYED ONE OF THE VISIBLE FORMS OF MEDIA THAT BLACK PPL HAD ...MUSIC. In the 90's, 80's black ppl/WOMEN played a major role in music entertainment...videos setting trends etc. In the 90's we had a several black female groups like en vogue, tlc, brownstone, escape,swv,jade. ...as well as black female singers,rappers, reggae artists. Black people could have dominated the music scene had remain united. No one could have complained that blk male rappers/singers only have black women looking classy in videos. All other races/ethnicities do the same thing. Look at other networks.. white, indian,korean, latin men use the same women in their race for their videos,movies etc. Once THEY realized that selfish black rappers/singers were willing to destroy black women....the MEDIA ran with it. Do you realize the days of black female artists/groups are practically gone FOREVER. No, it's not due to internet downloading. The face of black male rappers/singers have remained the same. They made sure NOT to include any other men. BOYCOTT THEM ALL. EITHER THEY RESTORE BLACK MUSIC CULTURE WITH BLACK WOMEN ...OR DESTROY IT ALL. TELL THEM TO REMOVE THEIR BLACK FACES AND REPLACE IT WITH WHITE, LATIN, INDIAN MEN!!!!!! I don't care what race of women blk men date or marry. The issue is the EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES that they took away from blk women. The black music culture that was built on the blood, sweat,and tears of blk ppl should not used by blk male artists to make money for themselves and invite OTHER WOMEN to PROFIT. reply by BOYCOTT MALE RAPPERS/SINGERS 2:17 pm - Mar 1, '11 BOYCOTT THEM ALL!! Look at all the ppl that are getting mad because I am trying to get black females to open their eyes. You have to remember that every race, cnn fox news ,KKK,ETC comes to blk blogs to stalk blk ppl and get info. DO NOT FALL FOR THE TOKEN DARK/BLK FEMALE ANYMORE! Puffy/Diddy started the latina trend when he started dating J LO IN THE LATE 90'S. Don't believe me....I challenge you to go back and find a latina playing the LEADING LADY in any video B4 diddy put J LO in his Been around the world video around 1997. I tried to get black women to protest back then because I new that other black male artists would start ding the same. Do you realize that if black women had given J LO a fraction of the HATE that you give Rihanna, nicki,and other blk female artists you could have STOPPED the latina, brazilian trend. Again..all latinas/brazilians do NOT consider themselves black regardless of their DNA. I am soooo angry at all the blk women who grew up in the 90's,80's and allowed this to happen! You know darn well that you did not grow up seeing OTHER women in almost every hip hop RandB video. They are attacking the new generation. You have young black girls who have hardly seen any black females looking positive in these videos for their ENTIRE life. They want to keep black women down. That's why every other day there is some random post about how insecure blk women are. It's 2011 and black women you have LOST a lot. Black women had more positive images in the media in the 90's,80's. It's only going to get worse until you BOYCOTT EVERYTHING! Go natural, make your own clothes if you have to. Stop giving the world your money. SUPPORT BLK WOMEN INSTEAD. Diddy's conscious must have bothered him. Yes, dirty money are black .. but look at the LEADING LADY in the videos. They will use a TOKEN black female to keep you quiet. Don't fall for it. IF CB tries to have blk girls in his videos now because his team stays on these posts.... still BOYCOTT HIM, it's too late. LET me see them use black females for the next 10 YEARS LIKE THEY HAVE USED NON BLK WOMEN FOR THE LAST 10. Things should have remained the way they were in the 90's. BOYCOTT 106 and park on BET!!!There should not be any black girls sitting in the audience laughing when BET DOES NOT WANT A BLACK FEMALE TO HOST THE NUMBER 1 SHOW ON A BLACK NETWORK. Rosci said that she is NOT black. BOYCOTT

MBA from HBS is for regular folks that can only dream of becoming a Tyra Banks. Most end up in Ibanking and consulting...pales in comparison to being a global brand and owner of your own multimillion dollar corporation.

Wow, there are some angry folks on here! A college degree isn't the only way to show that you are successful. I'm not sure that the program she's in is an actual degree program, but you have to be the head of a company that makes AT LEAST $5 million a year to even get in. So yeah, her personal money may have gotten her in, but if she didn't have a successful BRAND, her personal accounts wouldn't have made a difference. You know who else wouldn't be able to get into HBS? Microsoft's Bill Gates and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, neither of whom have degrees...but they, too, are obviously successful, and I doubt if people would be questioning THEIR credentials.

Umm...yes Bill Gates and Mark

Umm...yes Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg CAN get into HArvard Business SChool. Harvard has accepted one student who didn't have a college degree before. He worked in the Bush administration. He was not even a Harvard dropout and he had not started a multibillion dollar company. HBS will bend the rules if they want to. Tyra Banks is very deserving of taking classes at HBS in my humble opinion.

Don't argue w/these clowns.

Don't argue w/these clowns. Anyone who has a masters or Ph. D knows that your real life experience is and can be a measure where with an school will admit you into their programs. But when you attend Heald, University of Phoenix or any other fly by night FOR PROFIT scam you don't know these things. Hell you don't know them cause you're limited. You don't talk to people who are not doing bigger things and you have no desire to learn something outside of your comfort zone.

She is in a small three week program for three years that anyone with money can simply get into. PLEASE, SHE IS NOT IN HBS. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE THE LIKES OF TYRA TO GET INTO HBS, Because lets face it, most of the people there come from wealthy families. Her money wouldnt impress anyone there, neither will her ghetto attitude. That said, cant knock her hustle.

Sorry but you are

Sorry but you are wrong.... In 2011, Banks enrolled in the Owner/President Management Program (OPM) at the Harvard Business School. The OPM is an executive management program designed for senior executives who are "major equity stakeholders in companies with annual sales of at least $5 million." The program takes place over three three-week periods, one a year for each of three years. The program fee for each year is, as of 2011, $31,000, for a total program cost of $93,000 for the nine-week program. Admission is selective and based on professional achievement. A college degree and standardized tests are not required for admission. Participants are not awarded degrees upon completion of the program.

Tyra is going to HBS’s

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 (in Tyra's case, no undergrad education at all) 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 :-/

Have to come to her defense

Have to come to her defense here. The technical name for the program is the Harvard Owner/President Management Program, which is for people who own their own business/brand, but may have not completed a traditional program. At first I really thought it was a fluff program so Harvard can say that they have notable people on campus, but I was really impressed to see that Tyra was accepted to both USC AND UCLA before starting modeling. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/03/06/sunday/main20039776.shtml I read the info, and I'm not sure that it's a degree program; either way, though, it seems like she will be learning more about the inner workings of business and not have to rely on other people to explain/do things for her. http://www.exed.hbs.edu/programs/opm/Pages/default.aspx
