Negotiation is the art and science by which decisions are made, agreements are reached and disputes are resolved between two or more parties. Managers negotiate with individual employees, colleagues negotiate solutions to problems, representatives from different companies negotiate contracts and companies often negotiate with representatives from government or regulatory bodies. This course is designed to be relevant to the broad spectrum of bargaining problems that are traditionally faced by managers. Successful negotiation is both an “art” and a “science”, and as such, successful learning is prefaced upon active participation in experiential activities.

Project finance is an approach that uses the cash flows generated by a new project to repay the debt used to construct the project and to provide a return to the equity investors in the project. Project finance debt is typically borrowed on a non-recourse or limited-recourse basis in which the cash flows generated by the project, and the assets of the project, serve as the collateral for the lenders. This approach enables large projects to be financed that otherwise would be too large, or represent too much of a resource allocation, for individual corporations and host governments.
