Tyra Banks Harvard Business School

Harvard Business School 'graduate' Tyra Banks under fire from critics because her qualification is short course certificate instead of full degree  May 13, 2022 – 01:08 pm

Tyra Banks famously graduated from Harvard Business School earlier this year. But today she came under fire from critics who have taken issue with the fact that the qualification is not a ‘proper’ degree.

The supermodel, 38, has never suggested that she has anything other than a ‘diploma’ from Harvard.

However even the word 'diploma' might be a stretch, as Ms Banks actually earned a ‘Certificate of Completion’ for her nine-week course in the university’s Owner/President Management non-degree extension program.

While these classes are offered through Harvard Business School’s extension school, the head of the program has stated that it is ‘very different from a full-time M.B.A degree program, ’ which would take two years to complete.

Nor do the classes come cheap. OPM 'clients' are required to complete three three-week units, at an ear-ringing $33, 000 per unit.

That’s nearing $100, 000 for the privilege of attending classes on campus.

The revelation regarding Ms Banks's Harvard qualification was revealed in a biting report on Jezebel, criticizing the model's ‘habit of making misleading public statements about her studies.'

It read: 'She ought to just tell the truth.’

The article goes on to say that ‘Tyra Banks is an accomplished businesswoman. There is no reason to embellish her achievements. A Harvard Business School graduate she is not.’

While Ms Banks, a former high school honor roll student, has never claimed to have a Harvard degree, it appears that she does seem set on boasting about her Ivy League cred.

In February, she tweeted two pictures of herself on Harvard’s campus.

Big strides: Ms Banks tweeted: 'On stage at my Harvard Business School graduation!' on February 17 this year

Proud: The model tweeted a picture of herself with her 'diploma' at Harvard

The first shows her walking past a podium, accompanied with the words: ‘On stage at my Harvard Business School graduation! Lil blurry but SUCH an exciting moment 4 me & wanted 2 share w/u!’

In the other, she clutches her diploma on campus, tweeting: ‘Smiling ear2ear on the Harvard Business School campus w/my diploma!’

All this name-dropping seems gratuitous, considering the successful media empire the reigning queen of fierce has built for herself: America’s Next Top Model’s 19th season (pegged as the ‘College Edition, ’ coincidentally) debuted on the CW network this week.

The latest cycle is a marked departure from the past – with new judges like fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone, outspoken blogger BryanBoy, and her rumoured ‘toyboy, ’ 24-year-old male model Rob Evans.
