Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

Deals with negotiation and bargaining, focusing on process, practice, and procedures. Concentrates on the use of negotiation and bargaining to resolve conflicts and disputes between organizations and groups. Discusses various theories of negotiation, including conventional "positional" bargaining, interest-based bargaining, the use of power in negotiation, and game theoretic approaches to bargaining. Examples, cases, and exercises are used to illustrate general principles. This is a generic negotiation course and thus does not deal with labor relations nor does it focus on any particular type of negotiation. Rather, it examines negotiation and bargaining generally, using examples drawn from several contexts, including employment relations, environmental disputes, real estate transactions, and other settings.

When Offered Fall or spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: background in economics and social sciences.
