Whether in politics, business or science, the success of future leaders around the world will depend upon an understanding of China’s role in global trends. Students will spend a year immersed in an international community of thinkers, innovators and senior leaders in business, politics and society on the campus of Schwarzman College in Beijing.
In an environment of intellectual engagement, professional development and cultural exchange, they will learn from one another and pursue their academic disciplines while building their leadership capacities. This experience will expand students’ understanding of the world and create a growing network of global leaders for the future.
