The Program & WHY you should attend

How to become a better manager by conquering
the art & science of negotiation

Are you a professional, an executive or a manager in the private or public sector who faces significant change and transition in your workplace and who would like to enhance your influence both internally and externally?

This program is ideal for you if you engage in key activities such as Business Development, Strategy, Procurement, Consensus Building, Online Commerce, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Consulting and Sales in industries from banking and pharmaceutical to tech startups and energy.

This year’s edition gives an opportunity to Human Resource executives to also participate, whereas senior government representatives, elected officials, policy makers, leaders in the public sector and their private sector counterparts will find this program extremely rewarding too.

What on earth is this program?

The Art and Science of Negotiation is a three-day executive education program in negotiation and conflict management. It provides cutting-edge techniques to positively influence the outcome of any negotiation situation, resolving issues thanks to the set of skills you will acquire by participating.

This program introduces participants to the tools needed in order to negotiate effectively across a broad range of issues, organizations and stakeholders; prepare for complex negotiations, anticipate and overcome obstacles, close stronger deals and think on their feet when decisions must be made in a flash.

The course builds cumulatively from simple negotiations to highly complex, i.e. from two party single issues, toward multiparty negotiations that evolve over time. Structured negotiation role playing and simulations are used to isolate and emphasize specific analytic points, essential skills and develop intuition about complex negotiations.

Who should apply

Professional expertise and experience will critically contribute to the learning process, therefore candidates who are engaged in or seeking to engage in corporate and/or public governance, are encouraged to participate.


  • Fluency in English is essential.
  • Participants must distance themselves from their professional responsibilities for the duration of the program.
