Learning Objectives

The course illustrates the aims and content of the negotiating process, adopting an interdisciplinary approach to analysis.

The primary objective is for students to develop the expertise necessary to recognise the specific aspects of negotiations involving inter-cultural relationships and to understand the complex factors that contribute to the success of such negotiations.

Program

Intercultural negotiation. The negotiating process. Communication styles and individual differences.  The influence of cultural frameworks on inter-personal communication. Maps for analysing cultural models: strengths and aspects requiring care.   Managing negotiations by valorising differences. Negotiation effectiveness factors.  Active listening. Emotional self-awareness. Creative conflict management. 

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Expertise and capacity for understanding:students must demonstrate an understanding of the specific aspects and characteristics of the negotiating process. They must acquire the knowledge necessary to understand the impact of cultural differences on negotiations.  They must develop competence in the tools available for improving the effectiveness of negotiations.

Applied expertise and capacity for understanding: students must acquire the basic competence needed to recognise the impact of cultural paradigms on communication, to identify risks and success factors in intercultural negotiations and to identify the approaches best suited to the specific context.

Autonomy of judgement: students must demonstrate the capacity to express considerations on the themes covered in the course and to reflect on the responsibilities associated with the application of their knowledge. They must also develop an awareness of the role that negotiating processes play in effective personal and corporate activities.

Communication skills: students must be able to communicate their conclusions clearly, along with the facts and reasoning underlying them, using language and specific terminology in a pertinent manner. 

Capacity for learning: students must demonstrate a capacity for dealing with complex themes and applying the knowledge they acquire during the course in an interdisciplinary manner. They must also demonstrate a capacity to learn from self-guided study.

The results of such learning shall be applied through didactic methods to be described later.
