This elective course is designed to provide students with the skills needed to negotiate effectively in the international business environment. It introduces general negotiation theory and specific strategic methodologies useful in the rapidly shifting environment of international business. It develops these strategic themes and aims to help students identify and respond to unprincipled tactics, while gaining confidence in employing principled tactics when negotiating with particularly uncooperative or hostile parties in difficult environments. Particular emphasis is given to the range of diverse communication and negotiation techniques required to meet the cross-cultural challenges of contemporary regional and global markets.
The course is structured to mix discursive survey of theory with highly interactive role-play and group workshops for action learning through negotiation case studies and simulations. Selected negotiation sessions will be videotaped and time will be spent with each student group evaluating and critiquing negotiation performances.
