Oxford University’s Saïd Business School has announced that it is partnering with the Schwarzman Scholars program to offer a dual-degree program.
Through the new partnership, current Schwarzman Scholars can add an Oxford MBA to their Master’s in Global Affairs program.
According to Dana Brown, the director of the Oxford MBA program, the partnership "allows a select group of students to build in-depth knowledge, networks, and experience in China through the Schwarzman Scholars programme, before gaining a deep understanding of global business practices and cutting-edge management practices by completing the Oxford MBA."
The Schwarzman Scholars program, which launches in 2016, allows a select group of students to study a Master's in Global Affairs at Tsinghua University in Beijing. The program was designed to help participants network, get leadership experience, and gain a robust understanding of China's role in global affairs. The program is one year long and is now accepting applications for its inaugural intake.
Under the new partnership, students would apply to both programs simultaneously but separately. Successful applicants would start their Oxford MBA upon completion of the Master's in Global Affairs program.
