Congratulations: Tyra Banks Shows She’s Beauty & Brains And Tweets About Her Graduation From Harvard Business School

- By Bossip Staff

Tyra Banks has conquered both runways and television… but now she’s conquering the Ivy League!! Tyra tweeted a few pics (snapped by her very proud momma) during her graduation ceremony from Harvard today. It’s official, Ms.Banks is a certified scholar. The model mogul has finally received her MBA from Harvard Business School’s Owner/President Management Program (OPM).

She told the Wall Street Journal back in October that as she was growing her brand, she found herself trying to put her hands into too many projects. Her time at Harvard helped her focus her energies:

“Professors explained to me that focus is great. Being the biggest and having your foot in a bunch of things is not necessarily the best thing. So I came back and focused the message of my company. Harvard said to wait two weeks before you tell your staff, but I couldn’t wait. I said, ‘If it’s not about expanding the definition of beauty and making women feel physically and emotionally better about themselves, then we’re not doing it.’ My business before was based on me. But my marketing professor has taught me that it’s about customer centricity and not about me centricity. It’s about her. How do I affect that girl?”

Congrats Tyra! 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.” Will you be watching?
