Tyra Banks Goes Back to School

You gotta love Tyra Banks! Despite already being an accomplished business woman, the 37 year old model-mogul has chosen to enroll at Harvard Business School to officially obtain a degree.

“I started last summer and I didn’t really talk about it. It was very incognito, my name and everything, but I decided to talk about it now,” Banks, who recently launched the fashion and beauty site Type F, tells MTV News. “I think it’s a positive thing, especially for girls to see that you can still continue to educate yourself, and you can still be fabulous and fierce and celebrate your femininity.”

Tyra adds that despite her many successes, she feels there is much for her to learn in order to take her life and career to the next level. “I think a lot of girls think it’s either/or, even at my age, I feel that it’s never too late to continue your education,” she explained. “I can’t just rely only on my gut. I have to have the knowledge that my professors have in order to take it to the next level.”

And for those who think Tyra only got into Harvard because of her fame, she adds that she was always a good student and was accepted into USC and UCLA before choosing to try her hand at modeling.


  1. well ok! now this is the type person i respect and would call a queen.most of these ladies need to take notes!

  2. I don’t know but I really don’t like this woman. I now realize that she only gained all the weight to attract people for her talk show but then lost it back when the talk show was up.

  3. It’s funny I remember on top model when she told Yaya Dacosta to down play the fact that she graduated from Brown University because it made her seem arrogant. I still couldn’t believe a black woman told a black girl that on national televsion. Banks is so full of crap it’s scary!

  4. What “ladies” need to take notes? Do you know how many black actresses have degrees, the entire cast of Girlfriends, Taraji Hensen, Angela Bassett. They just don’t advertise it.
