The Best & Brightest: A CNBC Documentary about the Inaugural Class of Schwarzman Scholars

CNBC premiered their original documentary featuring Schwarzman Scholars entitled, A Billionaires Bet: The Best and Brightest.

After the announcement of the first cohort, we gave CNBC access to follow the stories of the inaugural class from acceptance to arrival in Beijing and throughout their year as Scholars. They followed the first cohort on the ground at Schwarzman College, in the classroom and out, in order to capture the spirit and mission of the program.

The documentary features Scholars as they pursue their one-year Master’s Degree in Global Affairs at Tsinghua University, one of the leading universities in China. Through a curriculum designed by leading academics from around the globe, the Scholars hone their leadership skills, interact with distinguished guest lecturers, and develop firsthand exposure to China and its people.
