Schwarzman Scholars Program was founded by Stephen A. Schwarzman, chairman, CEP and Cofounder of the Blackstone Group L.P. Designed to prepare the next generation of global leaders, Schwarzman Scholars is the first scholarship created to respond to the geopolitical landscape of the 21st Century. 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. The scholars will live and study together on the campus of Schwarzman College where all classes will be taught in English.
