Advance your international negotiation knowledge and skills in an inter-disciplinary, multi-national environment
The Dispute Resolution Institute at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in cooperation with the Summer University, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, offers students the opportunity to complete a six-credit integrated residential and distance learning program in international business negotiation. The Certificate in International Business Negotiation (IBN) gives you the opportunity to experience the dynamic nature of international business negotiation and to engage with other students in the way that international business occurs—both in person and through distance technology. This program attracts law and business school students, as well as lawyers, professors, and practicing business professionals from around the globe.
IBN evolved from DRI’s work leading an international project to examine what is taught in negotiation courses and how it is taught with special emphasis on how best to “translate” teaching methodology to succeed with diverse, global audiences. The Rethinking Negotiation Teaching project brought together international conflict resolution scholars and practitioners in a multi-year project which spanned the globe with conferences in Rome, Istanbul, and Beijing. Cross-disciplinary and international project teams produced over 95 chapters in four books and several journals. The project sought to change the way negotiation is taught in exciting and innovative ways and IBN is the fulfillment of this goal.
