Management of Negotiation (MBA) (711N1)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

This module equips you with the knowledge, understanding and skills to manage the negotiation process at the tactical and strategic levels. Managing negotiations is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-functional, therefore the approach in integrative. Organisations, behavioural and psychological elements are studied together, with the objective of improving the effectiveness of negotiations.

The principal argument is that the main techniques are common to all negotiations, however organisational, behavioural and psychological considerations constrain choices and actions in specific contexts. The module provides you with a broad understanding of the negotiation process and the development of negotiating strategies and tactics across a range of contexts. Conceptual foundations are studied and combined with role play and live scenario building (including video feedback), enabling you to formulate and explore ideas, and providing opportunities to extend your negotiating skills.
