Wharton Dean Geoffrey Garrett will moderate, and previous Penn Schwarzman Scholars will also attend. Immediately following the conversation, Schwarzman Scholars Director of Admissions Rob Garris will hold an information session for interested applicants.
About the Schwarzman Scholars Program
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.
With the inaugural class enrolled in 2016, the program gives the world’s best and brightest students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and professional networks through a one-year Master’s Degree at Tsinghua University in Beijing – one of China’s most prestigious universities.
For those ready to make their mark on the world, Schwarzman Scholars represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
