Is Tyra Banks America's Next Top Business Exec? Already a supermodel, an author and a TV star, the brainiac pushed herself even more when she enrolled in Harvard Business School in 2010 in an executive education course geared toward the most successful entrepreneurs. As a teenager, Banks had been admitted to both USC and UCLA, but she passed up the opportunity to go to the Paris runways. "And the day that I put college on hold because I got discovered to go to Paris and try this whole modeling thing, it was one of the most difficult decisions of my entire life." she told CBS News. Two years later, Banks graduated from the prestigious school. "Smiling ear2ear on the Harvard Business School campus w/ my diploma!" she shared via Twitter on Feb. 23, 2012.
