Tyra Banks is a Harvard Business Student

Tyra Banks recently told CBS News that she’s been taking classes at Harvard Business School since last year. I can only imagine this statement was followed by a long period of silence before the reporter asked, “Are you sure you don’t mean the University of Phoenix?”

Even Banks acknowledges that her endeavor is somewhat of a surprise.

"When people have low expectations, you're just constantly going, 'Ta-da!' And they're like, 'Wow,' " Banks said. "It doesn't take a lot to wow them when they have low expectations."

What a great business model: disappoint people so they don’t expect much. I just hope during class she doesn’t slap her butt and say, “check out my big booty, y’all.”

Banks has been taking the classes to support her women’s empowerment non-profit organization, TZONE.
"In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best. So I went to the best."

If you’re looking for the best, I think you could think of a better name than TZONE. I don’t know how good of an idea it is to name a company after the acne prone area of your face. But hey, I’m no Harvard business student.
