Program Overview

The University of Notre Dame offers an online Executive Certificate in Negotiation designed for sales persons, business leaders, and entry-level employees seeking to improve their confidence in negotiation.  Notre Dame and University Alliance teamed up to give individuals and their company an edge in business communication through this program.  Students should learn ways to improve their interpersonal skills, decision making strategies and enhance your influence in any business setting.

The program consists of three 8-week certificate courses taught by faculty professors.  Each successive course builds upon the last giving you a foundational understanding of negotiation principles.  The three courses, Negotiation Principles, Advanced Negotiations, and Strategies for Conflict Management contain over 16 hours of online streaming video presentations, independent exercises and mastery exams.  In general, these classes take 25 to 30 hours to complete.

Each course is a unique experience. Negotiation Principles develops students' understanding of competitive situations when resources, direction or ideas are paramount concerns.  Advanced Negotiations builds upon the previous course but highlights the complexity of working with multiple groups and cross-culturally.  The final class, Strategies for Conflict Management, brings everything full circle and teaches the best possible tactics for negotiating effectively with difficult people and situations as well as the stress of deadlines and ultimatums.  The program also examines how to recognize your own pressure points and how to mediate these obstacles.  Completion of all three courses allows individuals to be eligible for the Executive Certificate in Business Administration from Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business.

    School Overview

    The University of Notre Dame is a private Roman Catholic institution of higher learning located in South Bend, Indiana. Founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin, the land was granted to Sorin by the Bishop of Vincennes with the instructions that Sorin must use the land to build a university. Receiving its charter in 1844, the university went on to bestow its first degrees just five years later in 1849. Throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s Notre Dame expanded by building residence halls, a library and a science hall. From the early 1950s to the late 1980s, the university experienced a vast increase in their endowment, research funding as well as annual operating budget. During this time, in the 1960s, Notre Dame, a previously all male university, opened its dorms to women. The first woman graduated from Notre Dame in 1972. Today, the university continues to flourish and expand.
