Tyra Banks Attending Harvard Business School

Tyra Banks says she's been attending Harvard Business School since last year.

"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," the 37-year-old Banks tells CBS News.

"I get mixed reactions. There are little facial expressions. The chin goes back, like, 'Really?'"

Banks, who started modeling at age 17, says she's been wanting to back to college for years.

"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."

"I gave myself a year to be a supermodel. And I said if it doesn't happen, I'm going back to school."

"It's pretty exclusive. It's quite expensive. But, I feel like it is worth it," Banks says of the $31,000 a year program, which sees her spend three weeks on campus a year. "$1,750 day but I feel like it is so, so worth it."

"I'm underestimated all the time. Like I feel like I kind of live with the wind at my face. I still feel that."

It's like, well, oh my god, why is a model going to Harvard? But that's actually a good thing, because when people have low expectations, you're just constantly going, "Ta-da!' And they're like, 'Wow.' It doesn't take a lot to wow them when they have low expectations."
