Tyra Banks Is Living That Dorm Life While at Harvard Business School

By Whitney Vasquez

Tyra Banks opted for a dorm room instead of a luxury loft during her studies at Harvard Business School.

The legendary Sports Illustrated model just gave fans a look inside the tiny, but pricey, on-campus unit on Thursday.

Sharing a black and white photo showing her sitting on a bed, Tyra poured her heart out about her college education which is helping her create a new business venture called Model Life.

"I am sitting in my @harvardhbs dorm pondering the massive undertaking of @ModelLand that launches later this year," she wrote. " I came to the business school many years ago with the #ModelLand dream in mind and now launch is so close."


News that Tyra Banks was first attending Harvard Business School broke years ago. In 2012, she even claimed she received a diploma from the prestigious ivy league, but fans had a big issue with that.

As many pointed out, she didn't actually attend Harvard. What she did was a speed course through a special program offered on campus.

According to several outlets, Banks completed a "nine-week program for executives called the Owner/President Management extension program."

Saying her return to school has helped her "refresh the knowledge" she gained from her first time around, the model explains above about her newest venture.

She also gives praise to the Harvard professors, who are helping her with her business plan.

"The genius professors here at #HBS are sharing their world class knowledge so that I can then take that and give YOU what you deserve," she wrote.

Thanking the faculty "for your tireless teachings," she adds, "I hope to make you proud."

Tyra Banks adds to the long list of celebrities who have completed courses at Harvard Business School.

Earlier this year, Ciara, Chip and Joanna Gaines completed a four-day Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports class at Harvard Business School and acted like they were graduates too.

Among their class included NBA stars Kevin Love, Luc Mbah a Moute and Julius Randle, and actor Eric Christian Olsen.
