After attending Harvard Business School, model/former television Tyra Banks has finally graduated from the Ivy League school’s Owner/President Management Program, a three-year, three-week increment program that helps successful entrepreneurs take their businesses to the next level. The former supermodel tweeted photos from her graduation day which was on February 17 in Boston, Massachusetts.
In her recent interview with Businessweek, Tyra talked about her once-in-a-lifetime experience and shared the most surprising thing that she learned while attending those sometimes intimidating classes:
Our leadership professor, Robert Steven Kaplan, was the vice-chairman of Goldman Sachs before he left to become a professor at Harvard. The difference in income he now gets is staggering. He is constantly trying to teach us to not chase the dollar but to make a difference. I thought we’d be taught “profit, profit, profit, win, win, win, go, go, go.” Instead, we were hearing about the importance of exposing vulnerability to your team. It’s soft stuff, talk-show stuff.

A true testament that with hard work, determination and confidence in yourself, anything is possible. Props and a big congratulations, Tyra!
