Teaching system

“The programme does systematic analysis on negotiation’s structure, process and strategy, and it helps a lot in controlling negotiations from a higher level and as a whole. With visualized cases and open mindset, the professor explains profound knowledge in a simple way. His belief in achieving harmonious development and multi-win through negotiation, together with his spirit of rational speculation, make us gasp in admiration. Doubtlessly, it is very pleasant learning experience.” 

Charles Chen, Baxter (China) Medical

The training takes place over a period of three days, with additional online modules and access to a database aimed at deepening the knowledge acquired.

In order to ensure the quality of our trainings, their interactivity and a healthy dose of competition, we restrict the number of participants to 20 per session.

Every class session is split in two parts. The first part focuses on concepts and theory. The second part is dedicated to case studies or simulations in small groups. 

Once the training is duly completed, you will obtain a Certificate of Advanced studies, granted by the European Post-Graduate School of International & Development Studies.
