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!

Black people complain about

Black people complain about everything. If you do right, wrong, nothing, they will still find smth to say about you, which explains why little progress is done in the community. Congratulation, Tyra for going back to school to obtain a degree instead of just stopping at being a model or TV Host.

Congratulations Tyra! This

Congratulations Tyra! This was time well spent. Other entertainers should take a lesson in effort to better steer their own ships instead of falling prey to sticky fingered accountants. Good for you. You've got your business cap on which you need in that slick entertainment industry full of opportunists and fast talkers.

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 of 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!!

People seem to forget that before she started modeling Tyra was accepted into several top colleges, so she's not stupid. Congrats to her for wanting to continue her education, especially with a net worth of $90 million!!

People will always judge you

People will always judge you no matter what. Knowledge is power. I admire those who still do it the traditional way whether it leads you to be millionaire or billionaire or just an average person, it's still one of the best accomplishment in life. Then, after you been successful in other areas, it's always nice to expand your knowledge. There's no better way to do it than at an institution. Black people, education is an universal thing, it's not a white thing. Some ignorant people might say why will she go back when she's rich. Well, money can't buy you certain things in life. That been said, congrats Tyra Banks, I'm proud of you.

she's not a college graduate,

she's not a college graduate, but a HBS certification is (more) money in the bank. she's honing her skills, sharpening the saw...Anything from an Ivy League school is gonna hold weight. she's doing it big, and now she totally understands her work. good for you Tyra! some of us on here talking shit need to take note. EDUCATION is key!
pgrip's picture

Good for her on this

Good for her on this certificate. However your comment about anything from an ivy having value is not accurate. Certificates from executive leadership training programs and the Harvard extension school are not viewed in the same light as degrees earned from degree granting competitive admission programs. She did not earn an MBA. Employers and academics do not regard these types of certificates with much value, particularly in Cambridge and in other competitive settings. This is not to slight her achievement, but I am just trying to provide accurate information.

As an alum of one of

As an alum of one of Harvard's graduate programs I'm also very familiar with Harvard Business School (or as we call it, The B School). Several of my friends are Harvard MBAs. It's extremely difficult to get into and Tyra would have had to complete a rigorous application process in addition to scoring well on the GMAT or GRE. It's also a 2 year program. So no, her degree is not a full-fledged Harvard MBA, but it deserves respect nonetheless. It wouldn't even make sense for Tyra to spend 2 years earning an official MBA. She'd spend $200,000 while losing millions because she wouldn't be able to run her company or pursue TV projects. The certificate allows her to gain great business experience that she can use to improve her company while not consuming 2 years of her extremely valuable time. And Harvard Business school doesn't just hand out certificates to anyone either so big congrats to you Tyra!

As the President of Harvard

As the President of Harvard and Bankable Productions I would like to commend you on your accurate forensics accounting. On you wild imagination of resources, and on talking so much while saying so little. On behalf of Harvard and it's faculty I would like to confirm your Doctrine of philosophy of using lies as alibis from our fine institution.

Great comment. People have

Great comment. People have been trying to discredit Banks since she entered this program. The lady has never been a dummy and was accepted to schools like Cornell and Loyola but instead decided to go and model in Paris at 17. How'd that work out for her? Tyra's all about building her brand and this program most likely taught her many things that she can use to grow Bankable Ent. I respect this chess move by her.

for one stop lying that u

for one stop lying that u went to harvard. secondly, b-school needs gmat, not gre. thirdly, harvard extension adult continuing online education does not cost 200gs and is not a 2 year program. u need to act like u are smart and what not. before u recite these, do some thorough research. i actually went to harvard undergrad and got an economics degree. currently at columbia working on my mba. so hushhh, hood rat.

And please please get your facts straight. 1) I was referring to Harvard Business School's cost of attendance for a full MBA (2 years), which is $200,000. Look it up. 2) The basic Harvard Business School program requires the GMAT but the 2+2 program will take either the GMAT or GRE.

Look hater, no need to lie. I have a Masters in Architecture (MArch-I) from Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) that I received with Advanced Placement. I graduated in 2004 and my first day of class was September 11th, 2001. I currently sit on the Graduate School of Design's Alumni Council. I'll be returning to Cambridge in March 7th to lecture at a symposium I was invited to speak at. While I was a student I lived in Somerville on Beacon Street. Those are FACTS my dear. If you indeed are an alum you would have them too. Damn hater.

You look stupid. I don't know who all those other people are that you are mentioning. I've always been DesignDiva on this blog. Secondly, NONE of the facts I mentioned can be googled because they are completely unrelated. To know that John Lithgow's daughter graduated in 2004 at a commencement where Kofi Annan spoke on the day Ray Charles died would require me to have BEEN there. To know there is a neighborhood south of Cambridge called Somerville where many Harvard grad school live and that Somerville has a Beacon Street requires me to have BEEN there. To know that students started classes at Harvard on 9/11 requires me to have BEEN there. I'm done lecturing.

There is no "Harvard Alumni

There is no "Harvard Alumni Magazine." There is only Harvard Magazine, which many alums automatically are subscribed to once they receive and set up their post.harvard.edu email addresses after graduation. I'll admit that I rarely read the magazine, but I do receive it. Sen Al Franken is on the cover of the latest issue. That info is easily google-able though. Proves nothing.
