Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The three key objectives of this course are to provide the students with:

1. An understanding of different theories of the negotiation process and the application of these theories to a variety of settings. The theories to be covered include rational models of bargaining behavior that have been developed in economics and decision sciences, and cognitive and behavioral theories that investigate how bargaining behavior may diverge from the predictions of the rational models

2. Opportunities to develop their bargaining skills and apply the theoretical concepts covered in class in a variety of negotiating exercises as well as video analysis of negotiation scenes in feature films and TV series.

3. An interactive learning environment in which participation, reflection, and the contribution of ideas and experiences is highly valued

This course is based on the following premise:

Everybody negotiates but managers and professionals should know how to manage conflict and how to negotiate effectively.

Discussed topics include: Conflict & negotiations / Negotiators / Judgment & decision making / Negotiation Process / Strategies and tactics / Culture & negotiations

Assessment and permitted materials
