The all-new Schwarzman Scholars program will be housed in a new facility designed for the purpose at Tsinghua University, Schwarzman College. Robert A.M. Stern, architect and dean of the Yale School of Architecture is designing the building. We quote from the Keith Bradsher article in the New York Times of April 21,:
Students will live in pods of eight bedrooms with a common living room, a design taken from the executive education program at Harvard Business School. The building will also include 12 residential suites for the dean, director, and visiting faculty; a two-story forum resembling the one at Harvard Business School; an auditorium; and four classrooms.
The program will offer master’s degrees in public policy, international Relations, economics, business, and, later, engineering.
Tsinghau itself was founded in 1911 with foreign money.
