Drawing on the best traditions of Tsinghua and top academic institutions around the world, the curriculum bridges the academic and professional worlds to educate students about leadership and about China's expanding role in the world.

    The program also provides Scholars with unparalleled learning opportunities with leaders from China and the world through high-level interactions at lectures, a workplace experience, a network of mentors, and site visits and excursions to gain a greater understanding of contemporary China.

Orientation includes information sessions on academics, activities focused on team building and intention-setting, practical elements required for living in the College and in China, and formal convocation ceremonies for both Tsinghua University and the program.
