GRADUATION DAY! Tyra Banks COMPLETES Harvard Business School


 

Tyra Banks tweeted a few pics (snapped by her Mom) during her graduation ceremony from Harvard today.  See the pics inside....

Tyra Banks has been out of the public eye for a while as she focused on studies at Harvard.  And now, the work has paid off as she tweeted,

Smiling ear2ear on the Harvard Business School campus w/ my diploma! Tnx 2 my fab photographer mama 4 the pic!

Then she tweeted, A pic of me in the slideshow Harvard Business School showed @ my graduation! Don't be afraid 2 raise ur hand in class


 

Hey mom also snapped this pic and Tyra revealed, On stage at my Harvard Business School graduation! Lil blurry but SUCH an exciting moment 4 me & wanted 2 share w/u!

Now that she's done with classes, Tyra will be gearing up for Cycle 19 on "ANTM" which will be dubbed, of course, "The College Edition."

Smize!  Congrats Tyra!

OK, for those asking "how

OK, for those asking "how many of you could have gotten into Tyra's program at Harvard?" The answer is ALL. The lack of education here is scary. Tyra enrolled in a program at Harvard that anyone can get into, by paying 30K or so. That means, if YOU have money, you too can complete the program--which was designed for working entrepreneurs. Now, I'm not saying Tyra doesn't deserve any kudos, but I am stunned by how uninformed the general public is. Do you REALLY think Tyra could have gotten a straight up Harvard MBA without a bachelor's??? Can you not Google how higher education works in the world? I know it may seem to be too much for you, but ermmm...visit & explore Harvard Business School. Learn the requirements. Educate yourselves. Some certificates at Harvard can be earned by mid-career executives who are willing to PAY to get in (ie NO ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENT, except an upfront payment)...which is what Tyra did and you can do too, if you're a mid-career entrepreneur w the cash! Smh. Slow pokes.

She is already a very successful business woman, so it is not as though she does not know how to run a business. She sure as hell didn't have to go back to school, but chose to for whatever reasons. I am happy she achieved her goal and wish her even more success. Pick up the phone and call Everest College, Devry, Harvard, Yale or wherever, and go get yours.

Diploma, certificate, degree,

Diploma, certificate, degree, whatever it is. I am proud of the fact that she did something to better herself. When shakira took a class at UCLA, the media mention it like she graduated from UCLA with a degree. My point is, let's learn how to encourage, embrace when our people do something positive. The fact that she took the opportunity to do something like this is impressive. Let me tell you something, money doesn't complete your life or dream. One of her goals is probably to have some type of degree or certificate but went off to model. Now, she went back and did it.

Even after you have finished

Even after you have finished college or grad school it is always good to look into “continuing education” courses related to your field of study because there are always new things going on that people should be aware of.

Degree or Program

Degree or Program Certificate, Tyra's message is still positive, so why hate?? Tyra (who was accepted to top California colleges back when she a teenager, but opted to model in Paris instead) is INSPIRING kids to get an education. She not only has a scholarship program back at her old high school, but she is role modelling for all young girls as well. A successful black woman actually CHOOSING to go back to school is an excellent example of chasing your dreams with integrity and class. Hope you're not another Beyonce "Can't Put Two Sentences Together Without a Script" Knowles-Carter fan, aren't you?

Hate? Umm, not. I simply

Hate? Umm, not. I simply pointed out that a certificate is NOT a degree. I should know; I have 3 of them...and a law license to boot, thanks. There is nothing in my post that resembles "hate." It's all facts. I read blogs as a form of entertainment; you may need to re-direct your passion for something that will earn you some money...like a degree! :-)

"you may need to re-direct

"you may need to re-direct your passion for something that will earn you some money...like a degree! :-)" Though I threw in the Beyonce shade, lol... why insult my intelligence? Like you said, this is entertainment. No need to brag on your multiple degrees, which, by the way, just illustrates that you had to spend more money and time on college since the first degree didn't work out well for you. As an actual Ivy League alumnus, I think it's sad. But whatever, it's entertainment...

Tyra said she has her

Tyra said she has her DIPLOMA, not a degree. Reading is fundamental. Let's see you get into Harvard for any reason other than to sweep floors. There's always one bitter nigga who wants to detract from the accomplishments of someone who deserves POSITIVE recognition. Get off of the thread with your bullshit. As for paralegals, I don't know a paralegal program where you're ABA certified without receiving your AA or bachelor's (in CA). Congratulations to Tyra! Tyra is a multimillionaire who continues to strive for greatness and excellence in her life, not just her business or finances. She is truly an inspiration to many. We need more examples like hers. Props to Natasha for giving Tyra a much deserved spotlight.

You spoke of your law

You spoke of your law "license" to mislead people into thinking you're an attorney. I called you put about it because I know plenty of real attorneys who say law DEGREE not law license unless they're talking about the bar exam. As for your multiple degrees, big deal MANY people who post here have them, myself included. And as for Harvard, I'm being recruited by them a fact you wouldn't until you made that dumb comment about sweeping floors. And since I'm a descendant of people who swept floor for a living, I'm NOT ashamed they did what they had to do to get by. But you should be ashamed of yourself for mentioning it as if it's an insult. Chickenhead!!

Hopefully this will open up

Hopefully this will open up the doors for more African American Ivy League scholarships. There are many African American students who could attend Harvard if the cost of tuition weren't so high. We shouldn't place this all on Tyra Banks, but as a Business School Alumni(certificate or not) it would be great to see her give back in that aspect. If you are going to ask why I don't give back; well I donate 12k a year to my alumni for scholarships geared towards nursing students seeking a doctorates.

There are obviously a ton of slow bunnies on here. She never said she was getting a degree. Regardless how many of you can get into to Harvard and complete any damn thing? Unlike the majority of celebrities who think they're going to be hot forever, she has a plan. Do you realize how many rich mofo's are in the world and how many didn't get into Harvard? Get a grip. She had to put her work in. You all should know damn well if she wasn't legit plenty of caucasians would have called her out. No love for one another. Sadness.

Why is that black people

Why is that black people think that other rich black people owe them something. Do you realize we're the only race that think that way. How about you go out get your lazy ass off theybf.com and go get a job and stop asking for handouts! I hope congress one day get rid of welfare and food stamps b/c all it's done is cripple black people and make them lazy and I'm tired of give my hard earned tax dollars to a bunch of lazy bums who don't want to work. Lil Wayne, JayZ, Micheal Jordan, Oprah, none of these people owe you nothing and if I were them I would give a dollar to people who dont want to help themselves. Did anybody give them handouts no they went out and got it themselves. Let's do better!!

J, I hear you. But let's not

J, I hear you. But let's not stereotype. Not all blacks feel that way. I gave my feedback, as a black woman, and left it at that. Plus, "they went out and got it themselves" is not exactly accurate." People gave them a chance, whether they acknowledge it or not (for example, Jay Z would be no where without Big Daddy Kane giving it a little time on stage when he was a youngster). I guess the rest is being a the right place, at the right time, with the right talent....

True. Chance and opportunity

True. Chance and opportunity has a lot to do with it- as does hard work, determination, and drive. But I honestly find it sad, that 'as a Black woman', you felt you had to insult Beyonce Knowles -another kind, successful, hard-working Black woman who has NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS POSITIVE POST- in order to get your opinion across. People that are successful all worked hard for their chance. No need to downgrade another person to 'big up' Tyra or anyone else working damn hard to be the best they can be.
