Master of Science of Negotiation & Conflict Resolution

Program Details

Conflict doesn’t always have to be a bad thing: when handled correctly, it can result in new ideas, innovation, and growth opportunities. Creighton University’s Master’s in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution online degree program approaches conflict management and resolution beyond the narrow focus of advocating for each party’s positions. Instead, you’ll learn to identify creative solutions, zero in on areas of shared interest and improve communication to reveal previously undiscovered potential for collaboration and harmony. The use of conflict resolution processes such as negotiation, facilitation, arbitration, and mediation is growing in a number of industries and areas of business, and expertise in this area can help you advance your career.
