Tyra Banks is Going to Harvard...


Tyra Banks is going back to school, and not just any school: The super-model-turned-mogul has been attending Harvard Business School since last year.

Going back to school has been a long time coming for Banks, who started modeling at age 17, just months before she was supposed to start at L.A.'s Loyola Marymount University.

"The day that I put college on hold because I got discovered to go to Paris and try this whole modeling thing ... was one of the most difficult decisions of my entire life," she said.

But Banks turned that opportunity into dreamlike success: In 2009, Forbes listed her as the highest paid woman in prime time, with an annual income of $30 million.

Now, Banks can clearly afford the steep tuition at Harvard's elite Owner/President Management Program, which requires students participate in intensive three-week sessions costing $31,000 a year for three years.
