Developing negotiating skills normally requires accumulating experience at the elbow of seasoned negotiators — experiences that can be hard to come by early in a professional career.
We developed Consensus Learning for students to experience authentic decision-making processes and hone techniques for analyzing and communicating with negotiating counterparts using a structured and engaging digital platform.
