The Schwarzman Scholarship offers a fully-funded, one-year master’s degree and leadership program at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, where scholars earn a master’s degree in global affairs. All participants undertake a core curriculum that builds connections and serves as an anchor for the rest of their studies. In addition to the core curriculum, they choose elective courses from a variety of academic disciplines. As the curriculum is refined each year to better meet the foundation's mission and goals, course offerings may change slightly each year.
Core and elective courses are taught by some of Tsinghua’s most accomplished faculty, as well as by visiting scholars from other leading institutions, and entrepreneurs, policymakers and thought leaders from around the world. Students are matched with senior mentors in business, academic, and government communities, participate in a cultural "deep dive," and do an internship. Chinese language courses are included, and are tailored to a full range of learning levels. Learn more from Schwarzman's Webinar series.
