Tyra Banks officially completed the Owner/President Management Program at Harvard Business School.

The supermodel turned mogul graduated with a certificate from the Ivy League school on February 17, according to Us Weekly. Banks posted photos of herself with her certificate on February 23.

"Smiling ear2ear on the Harvard Business School campus w/ my diploma," the 38-year-old wrote on her Twitter page. She credited her mother for taking the photo.

Banks first announced she enrolled in the program back in March 2011. The Owner/President Management Program lasts three years but students spend little time in class. During each year, participants must complete one three-week session. Each one costs $33,000.

Banks is known for her work as a supermodel, talk show host and co-creator of the reality show "America's Next Top Model." Banks also helms her own production company Bankable Productions.

"In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best," she told CBS News at the time. "So I went to the best."

"I get mixed reactions," Banks told CBS News. "There are little facial expressions. The chin goes back, like, 'Really?' I'm, like, 'Yeah, I'm going.' How do I react to that? I kind of take a pause and kind of analyze what this is. And a lot of it is just shock."

Other famous people who have attended Harvard University include actress Natalie Portman and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Correction: In the February 23 story above, OnTheRedCarpet.com erroneously reported that tuition for the Harvard Business School's Owner/President Management Program costs $33,000 per week. The program is actually made up of three annual three-week sessions, with each one costing $33,000. This version of the article has been updated to reflect the correction.
