Designed to prepare the next generation of global leaders, Schwarzman Scholars is the first scholarship created to respond to the geopolitical landscape of the 21st Century. Whether in politics, business or science, the success of future leaders around the world will depend upon an understanding of China’s role in global trends.
Enrolling the inaugural class this year, the program will give the world’s best and brightest students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through a one-year Master’s Degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing – one of China’s most prestigious universities.
Students will live and study together on the campus of Schwarzman College, a newly-built, state-of-the-art facility, where all classes will be taught in English. Students will pursue degrees in one of three disciplines:
- Public Policy
- Economics and Business
- International Studies
Students will spend a year immersed in an international community of thinkers, innovators and senior leaders in business, politics and society. In an environment of intellectual engagement, professional development and cultural exchange, they will learn from one another and pursue their academic disciplines while building their leadership capacities. This experience will expand students’ understanding of the world and create a growing network of global leaders for the future.
For those ready to make their mark on the world, Schwarzman Scholars represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Applications open in April 2015.
- Undergraduate degree or first degree from an accredited college or university or its equivalent before orientation begins in July 2016.
- No minimum GPA or pre-requisite courses required
- English language proficiency, as all teaching will be conducted in English.
- Must be at least 18 but not yet 28 years of age as of June 30.
