On Thursday night, Kim Kardashian tweeted, “So proud of @tyrabanks for graduating from Harvard Business School! Congrats TY!!! #rolemodel.”
Tyra Banks tweeted a photo of herself holding her diploma on the Harvard Business School campus. “Smiling ear2ear on the Harvard Business School campus w/ my diploma! Tnx 2 my fab photographer mama 4 the pic!” she wrote. Of course, she didn’t earn a a master’s or doctoral degree — in fact, Tyra attended only nine weeks of school over the course of three years to achieve her status as a Harvard alumna.
The program she participated in, Harvard University’s Executive Education Owner/President Manager Program, requires students to attend one three-week session (complete with dorm living and cafeteria food) per year for three years. Each session’s tuition is about $33,000.
It’s only appropriate that Banks, who dropped out of Loyola when she was 17 to pursue modeling, has a diploma on her wall. Cycle 19 of “America’s Next Top Model” will be college-themed.
