Enrolling the inaugural class in 2016, 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
For those ready to make their mark on the world, Schwarzman Scholars represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Applications open in April 2015.
Each year, up to 200 exceptional men and women will be accepted to the program.
