Schwarzman Scholars gives students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and professional networks through a one-year Master’s Degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing. Students live and study together on the campus of Schwarzman College, a newly-built, state-of-the-art facility, where all classes are taught in English. Students pursue degrees in one of three disciplines: Public Policy, Economics and Business, or International Studies. Students spend a year immersed in an international community of thinkers, innovators and senior leaders in business, politics and society.
