This post-master degree has been designed to enable managers to master the challenges posed by negotiation and conflict resolution. Having pioneered this area of study, it now provides an unconventional and comprehensive contemporary perspective on negotiations and conflict resolution in all their guises.
This training will give you the skills and latest techniques of a negotiator and conflict resolution specialist. Once they have acquired this skillset, students will be able to meet the challenges thrown at them by their professional environment by implementing win-win solutions for all parties.
Expert lecturers and speakers working in negotiation, mediation, conciliation, arbitration and conflict resolution contribute to every stage of the course. The teaching programme they have designed is based on the latest academic research, with a particular emphasis on recent advances in cognitive science, neuroscience and applied artificial intelligence.
All our speakers are internationally recognised negotiators. While some have forged a career in this demanding area within the business world, others have focussed on politics or on relationships with unions and employee representatives. Each of them has been called upon to find creative ways of striking the right compromise and implementing ideal solutions.
Future students will be asked to reflect on negotiations’ intrinsic, instrumental and constructive values and learn how to negotiate using the latest responsible, sustainable, solidarity-oriented ethics.
