Deb-B Seven Chew reflects on her experience of participating in three Oxford executive education programmes back-to-back, including the Oxford Programme on Negotiation.
Oxford Programme on Negotiation
- 3 weeks with 3 half-days per week
- Short programme
- Live virtual
Due to Covid-19 restrictions the next iteration of the programme will be a virtual experience, taking place over three weeks, starting Friday 5 November, 2021.
Your online experience has been carefully designed to combine live teaching, one-to-one tutor meetings, and group sessions. Independent learning will also take place, supported through your access to the virtual platform, with further readings and videos.
Please review further details of our virtual learning environment, and ask any questions.
About the programme
Develop deep insights into what is really going on during negotiations.
You will analyse complex negotiations cases and practice what you learn through role plays and simulations many of which are written by the Oxford faculty. This will enable you to develop a robust framework for successful future negotiations, whether they are in person or online.
Working with experienced faculty and tutors, you will take an objective look at your own negotiating style, reflect on past negotiations and experiment with new approaches.
Participants come from a wide range of geographical, cultural and organisational backgrounds, bringing a very real and valuable diversity to the debate. Exchanging ideas and experiences with a diverse group of participants, as well as a range of practitioners and academics, will help you understand negotiating across cultures and different perspectives. With virtual negotiations becoming ever more prevalent, we have designed a new module to address the unique aspects of online negotiation.
- Understanding decision-making in negotiations - how to negotiate rationally in a non-rational world
- Group decision-making in negotiations
- Negotiating in multi-party situations
- Communicating persuasively in negotiations
- Negotiating in a changing environment
- Trust and ethics in negotiation
- Negotiating successfully across cultures
- The significance of context and negotiations within organisations
- NEW: Negotiating virtually
The virtual programme this November
The virtual learning experience has been constructed to provide all of the teaching you would access on campus, combined with additional support and group working opportunities. You will not only participate in live teaching sessions with our faculty and guest experts, but also attend one-to-one and small group tutorial meetings throughout the three weeks.
Upon completion of the programme you will receive your Saïd Business School certificate of attendance and join the Oxford Business Alumni.
Programme Director, Paul Fisher, provides more detail on the content and delivery of the programme in this recording of our Oxford Programme on Negotiation Virtual Taster Session. Our team is here to answer all of your questions about joining us this March, so please do contact us.
