Masters in Global Affairs

As a Schwarzman Scholar, I intend to deepen my professional network and knowledge of China, to be ready to implement sustainability projects across Central Asia through the Belt and Road Initiative.

Schwarzman College is a place where busy people, who typically don’t have any free time, live together and have a little bit more time. That time leads to really interesting conversations and certainly conversations that have taught me things that I never even knew existed.
Heather Evans, Canada
I feel like if you took away all the classes and trips and everything like that, there would still be a life-changing experience at the end of it.
