“ As Chief Marketing Officer working in IP strategy, understanding our clients’ needs is the key to our success. Business Negotiations Skills led by Dr. Rosette helped me to find the delicate balance between getting what I want out of a negotiation, while also maximizing value for all parties involved. I learned how to dig deeper, prepare and be one step ahead in my own client and team meetings. Dr. Rosette is a world class professor who creates an energetic environment filled with mock negotiations that I can now apply in many areas of my life!" - Jamie LeLiever, Chief Marketing Officer and Duke Certificate candidate, Murgitroyd Patent Attorneys

More About this Program
Our blended program format consists of four consecutive half-day class sessions, starting at 11:00 a.m. EST. The in-person course content will be delivered in a format that consists of live streaming class sessions (see schedule below) with individual or team assignments to be completed outside of class meetings. The class sessions and group discussions will be held using Zoom video-conferencing, which has been extended into a virtual teaching system. This technology creates a virtual classroom where:
- You can see the faculty member and any presentation material he/she may be sharing
- You will be able to see the other participants in the classroom for that live-streaming virtual session
- The faculty instructor will be able to see all of the students engaged online during the group session
- You will be able to communicate with both the faculty member and your classmates through the Zoom platform
Live Teaching Schedule (see Sample Schedule section for detailed daily plans)
- May 12 Reflecting Inward
- May 13 Focusing Outward
- May 14 Managing Conflict
- May 15 Leading Change
To kick off the program, you will participate in an hour-long orientation session on May 5, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. EST during which you will introduce yourself to your faculty and classmates, as well as learn about the Zoom virtual streaming process and about conducting negotiations using the Zoom chat feature. Between the orientation and the first virtual class, you will conduct a negotiation with an assigned partner from the class, which you will debrief in your first class session.
|Date||Duration||Virtual Session Orientation|
|May 5||1.0 hour||11:00 a.m.--12:00 noon EST|
The orientation session will be recorded so if you're unable to attend the live session, you'll be able to review the discussion prior to the start of the program.
Professor Rosette will teach from her vast research on negotiations and create a safe, comfortable classroom experience that allows you to learn from the class discussion as well as through individual negotiation role-play. You'll also gain from the experience of others in the program, who are from a variety of industries and functions. After each class, you will negotiate with different classmates, at a convenient time, to practice the principles you are learning in class.
