Develop the mindset of a trade negotiator.
Consensus immerses you in a “negotiating world” to instill best practices for leading trade negotiations and achieving strong outcomes.
Experience an authentic rhythm and pace for trade negotiations. Make decisions about when and how to engage other delegations. Build and maintain coalitions. Practice effective process management. Unlike other online games, the goal when you play Consensus isn’t to “win” or accumulate points. And you can’t play alone. Participants must work together toward consensus on real world trade problems.
Our world needs good trade negotiators.
Achieving consensus requires asking the right questions, communicating well, and developing a good sense for when the deal is coming together—or falling apart.Sharpen Your Trade Skills
There is no substitute for learning by doing.
Using Consensus, you will design or play a role in a simulation that models the stages, rhythm, and strategies of a real trade negotiation.
Developed by former government trade negotiators, Consensus creates an authentic environment that immerses students in processes and strategies that become second nature to a seasoned negotiator. Students tackle real world trade problems that complement their academic coursework, putting them one step further toward becoming a professional negotiator.
