Program Details

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.
