Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Negotiation is the process by which two or more parties with interdependent interests secure agreements. This course is designed to cover a large range of negotiation situations and issues faced by managers and other decisions makers in the private and public sector. The class will consist of a mixture of case study discussions, negotiation exercises and lectures. We will learn about basic negotiation concepts and strategies, and discuss them in a variety of contexts such as corporate acquisitions, price wars, labor disputes, licensing rights, and international relations.

Assessment and permitted materials

Your final grade will be determined based on three components:

Class participation (max 20 points)

Group project (max 40 points)

Individual final paper (max 40 points)

You need to achieve a total of at least 50 points in order to pass the class.

Please note that you will start working on the group project during our fourth session so it is essential that you attend this session. You will have 24h to complete the project (including class time).

The topic for the individual final paper will be given to you at the end of our last session and you will have 14 days to complete it.
