The 2016 World Economic Forum’s report on The Future of Jobs identified negotiation as one of the core skills that will be required for the fourth industrial revolution, as large scale automation and disruption transforms the traditional workplace.
This six-week, highly interactive and immersive online certificate course equips you with a toolkit of proven negotiation strategies, techniques and practical skills to maximise your negotiation abilities, empowering you to approach any negotiation with confidence and ready to achieve the best result for you and your organisation.
Guided by expert LSE academics and industry leaders, you’ll discover the theoretical insights that underpin successful negotiation strategies, while practicing your newly-developed negotiation skills in live, interactive online individual and multi-party negotiations. You’ll also undertake practical real-world exercises, ensuring you gain not only new skills, but also the confidence to negotiate with impact.
You’ll study as part of a international cohort of like-minded working professionals from a wide range of industries and backgrounds, providing a unique opportunity to build your professional network and enhance your understanding of how to negotiate effectively across cultures and industries. During the final module of the course you’ll also explore the ethics of negotiation and how to apply negotiation best practice to achieve maximum impact in the digital world, ensuring you are prepared to thrive in an age of disruption and change.
Studying over a six-week period allows you to continually test and apply the theory, techniques and tactics you learn to your own context. By the end of the course you will already be implementing proven strategies to analyse, plan and successfully manage negotiations, increasing your business impact and accelerating your career.
