The Alumni Advantage
You are a Schwarzman Scholar for life.
A year together in Beijing is just the beginning.
We are committed to building and sustaining our Alumni community through opportunities for continuing education, cultural activities and social engagement. We invest in original programming, collaborate with prominent partners and keep connections strong through a Schwarzman Scholars Alumni platform.
Schwarzman Scholars Alumni continue to address the world’s most pressing issues. Through seminars, workshops and events designed to provide real-time insight and analysis, Alumni maintain their intellectual connections to and about China, Global Affairs and Leadership as they convene to discuss and debate important issues.
Career goals change. New skills become necessary. The Schwarzman Scholars Career Development team continues to offer resources to Alumni including coaching, access to a global jobs database and ongoing skills training. We celebrate the diversity of professional expertise and interests in the Alumni community and anticipate their contributions to whatever fields they choose.
Schwarzman Scholars Serve is an Alumni initiative that encourages and supports Alumni volunteerism in the places they live and work. Giving back to communities and seeing the impact of one’s contribution fosters an ethos of empathy, a critical quality in ethical leaders.
Now removed from my days in Beijing, I am struck by how often I think back to my experiences in China to make sense of world events, and in my day-to-day work with globally connected business.
