Negotiation is a business-critical skill. It is key to closing deals, maximising value in agreements and contracts and resolving differences before they escalate into conflict. This highly practical programme gives you immediate and deep insight into the dynamics of negotiation and the practices of successful negotiators. You gain the knowledge, self-awareness and practical tools and competencies to enhance – and continuously improve – your own negotiation skill set.


An intensive, empowering learning experience for you. Strategic impact for your organisation.  

Programme content

Key topics:

How you learn

Negotiation is an intensive, five-day learning experience that expertly integrates concepts and the latest thinking on negotiation with hands-on, practical group exercises, simulations and direct feedback from faculty and peers so that you embed knowledge and translate theory into real practice as you learn. The programme convenes practitioners from all over the world and a range of backgrounds, industries and expertise at the LSE campus in central London.

To sustain your continuous improvement as a negotiator, you will also complete a personal development plan at the end of the programme, with personalised feedback and input from faculty. Here you will self-assess your own style, strengths and weaknesses, and build a concrete road map to continue developing your skills. This is a unique and important opportunity for you to synthesise the feedback you have received over the course of the programme, and apply what you have learned in a real-world context. Your plan will be carefully analysed by faculty and will benefit from individual feedback and guidance.
