The purpose of this course is to help you understand the theory and process of effective negotiations. The course will complement the technical and diagnostic skills learned in other courses in the MBA program. While a manager needs strong analytical skills to develop optimal solutions to problems, good negotiation skills are needed in order for these solutions to be accepted and implemented. Great analysis is of little value if you are unable to win support for the actions it recommends. To provide you with the opportunity to develop both analytical frameworks and practical skills in negotiation, the course will rely primarily on hands-on learning.
