Dan Goldstern reflects on the Schwarzman Scholars program
July 23, 2018
After graduating from Penn in 2013, Daniel Goldstern sought out, and landed, a job in investment banking. A political science major with a love of philosophy, Dan was determined to bring these interests into his professional life. He pursued real estate development in New York City before enrolling in the inaugural (2016-17) class of Schwarzman Scholars at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. The diverse community of peers and ideas Dan found there gave him the space and perspective to assess where he could best enact meaningful change in his own community. Dan returned to NYC in 2017 to take up a role as a policy advisor to the Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development. CURF Fellow Kathryn Morgan caught up with Dan in May 2018, as concerns about an impending ‘trade war’ between the US and China were on the rise. Dan spoke thoughtfully about what he gained by pursuing a graduate degree in China, his decision to transition from the private to the public sector, and what the Schwarzman experience has meant to him, personally and professionally.
