The Schwarzman Scholars program, founded by Blackstone CEO Stephen A. Schwarzman, is an academically rigorous global postgraduate program that is oriented to today’s reality: a world where China plays an increasingly important role. Schwarzman Scholars brings together the best young minds worldwide to explore and understand the economic, political, and cultural factors contributing to China’s growth and rising importance as a global power. Scholars earn a one-year Master’s degree in Global Affairs at Tsinghua University, one of China’s most prestigious academic institutions, and gain an intimate understanding of China through academic, cultural, and professional immersion.

 Schwarzman Scholars recruits up to 200 students annually, and each cohort comprises 40% U.S. students, 20% Chinese students, and 40% from the rest of the world. The curriculum focuses on three core themes: leadership, global affairs, and China, and is taught in English by top Tsinghua faculty and outstanding visiting faculty from the world’s leading universities.

 The program allows students to develop leadership skills and professional networks. Schwarzman Scholars will learn about China through intensive graduate-level study, immersive travel and exploration, diverse mentorship and internship opportunities, and unparalleled access to global political, business, and thought leaders.
