In this seven-week online course, you’ll work collaboratively in small teams to work through obstacles and challenges and hammer out a deal that benefits both sides of a negotiation. You’ll meet with learners across the globe each week in a live, interactive negotiating session followed by written communications based on each session. Throughout this experience, you will explore the legal, business, social, ethical, and political issues that can arise during a complex transaction. And you will become a more effective negotiator with a better understanding of how to achieve mutually beneficial results for both sides. In addition, you will advance your skills as you go, with immediate instructor feedback after each negotiation session. There will also be an opportunity for verified learners to participate in live working sessions with the instructor and other potential guest speakers and professionals who have mastered the art and science of effective negotiations.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
