How time flies. It seems like just yesterday (OK, eight months ago) that we were all marveling at Tyra Banks’ decision to enroll herself in Harvard Business School. Now she’s been through two terms already and is set to graduate in February. So not only was she juggling her America’s Next Top Model duties and writing her debut young-adult novel, Modelland, but she’s also wrapping this up in three semesters?
In an effort to improve the self-esteem of normal human beings, when Tyra stopped by for today’s Big Morning Buzz Live, we had to ask if there was anything actually challenging her in school.
“My most difficult class at Harvard Business School would have to be finance,” she replied. “For the first 30 minutes of the class, I’m raising my hand, I’m all into it, ‘cause it’s kind of like theory and just like, the social part of the case. The last hour it’s all like Einstein and algebraic equations and craziness. And I’m just like, what the hell is going on? Please don’t call on me because it won’t be pretty.”
But it hasn’t exactly been all hardship for the queen of smizing. As she told BMBL host Carrie Keagan, though she’s forced to live on campus for the program, the meal plan has “amazing food” and she’s made lifelong friends among her classmates. And, oh yeah, she’s also learning more about running her business.
“I came back to my business for our Monday morning meeting and I’m like we’re not doing this, we’re not doing this, we are doing this,” she laughed. “It changed everything!”
