Negotiation Simulation

Tuesday, March 31st, 6:30-8:30pm

Room 118 Eppley Center

We will conduct a negotiations simulation hosted by our very own Shaya Jewani and David Crandall in Rm 118 Eppley Center. The workshop aims to enhance your negotiation skills in an interactive face-to-face simulation with your peers. The training exercise also illustrates how the influence of power affects the decision making process in business.

In order for the negotiations simulation to be manageable, the group size cannot exceed beyond 36 participants. Please RSVP as soon as possible so we can know how many participants we can expect.
