The Schwarzman Scholarship provides a fully-funded, one-year master’s degree and leadership program at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Scholars earn a master’s degree in global affairs. As part of the core coursework, scholars: choose between an offering of leadership courses; take a Global Affairs course, introducing Scholars to current and future challenges in global affairs; and take a course on Chinese political, economic, and social reform, covering aspects of China’s development over the last forty years. In addition, scholars choose elective courses from a variety of disciplines. Each Scholar works individually with their faculty advisors to design an academic plan suited to them.
Core and elective courses are taught by instructors including some of Tsinghua’s most accomplished faculty and visiting scholars from other leading institutions, as well as entrepreneurs, policymakers and thought leaders from around the world. Students will also be matched with senior mentors in business, academic, and government communities, participate in a cultural "deep dive," and do an internship. Language courses are mandatory for all students. Students can take Chinese language instruction from beginner to advanced.
