Schwarzman Scholars Program

The newest internationally competitive Schwarzman Scholars Program aims to create an international community of global leaders. Students from around the world will study together for one year at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, earning a master’s degree in either:

  • public policy,
  • economics and business,
  • or international studies

Schwarzman Scholars will also have internships in Beijing, be assigned mentors in relevant areas, and take part in educational excursions to other areas of China. No previous knowledge of Chinese is required, as all courses are taught in English.
