Condragulations are in order. Posing with her certificate, Tyra Banks re-wrote the ending for her Higher Learning character Deja. Picture her rollin’, Fudge.
The America’s Next Top Model creator and founder of Bankable Enterprises graduated with a certificate from the Owner/President Management Program offered through the Executive Education branch of Harvard Business School in Cambridge, Massachusetts,
There are “no formal educational requirements,” but the program is geared toward successful entrepreneurs. According to the program description, “candidates must be actively involved in running the business and hold a significant equity stake in their firms.”
Program participants are required to sleep in dorm rooms when they’re in town during their three year experience.
“After my first term, I came back and killed a whole bunch of businesses we were going into. We have to say no more often than we say yes, no matter how much money people put on that goddamned table,” Banks said on how the program enhanced her business savvy. “Harvard is all about innovation and being first to market. It’s something I’m constantly bringing back to my team.”
