Mastering Negotiations

Executive education program in English

Master your negotiation skills, build better relationships, and pave the way for long-term business and personal success with our program Mastering Negotiations. In this program, you will improve your conceptual understanding of the negotiation process, learn how to create and claim value in negotiations, how to effectively prepare for and structure negotiations, and develop skills to handle more challenging situations such as negotiating in teams or in an intercultural business context.

This course is for you if you frequently conduct negotiations within your company as well as with outside parties and want to transform yourself from an ‘experienced’ negotiator to an ‘expert’ negotiator.
