The NUCB Business School negotiation team was one of the 18 teams invited to participate in The Negotiation Challenge 2019 that took place from March 28-31 in Kyoto, Japan.
The graduate school’s negotiation team of Khalid, Mark and Ossama competed in the first round using Zoom at the Nagoya Marunouchi Tower Campus in Nagoya with Imperial College Business School on Friday 15th of March said;
“ The 1st round of the International Negotiation Challenge was quite the warm-up for the upcoming rounds, we were paired with Imperial College of London team whom their negotiation skills were impressive and made the negotiation role-play challenging and fun at the same time. We are definitely excited about this opportunity to learn more about negotiation as well as networking with other students from top universities around the world. Finally, we hope to use this experience to spearhead a negotiation competition within our school and let other students have know more about negotiation."
The Negotiation Challenge was founded in 2007 as the first international negotiation competition in Europe and one of only few international negotiation competitions in the world. The primary idea behind The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) is to gather world’s best student negotiators and allow them to compare their negotiation skills for practical application after graduation. Participating in TNC offers a great opportunity to experience diverse ways of negotiation and to meet and network with students from various countries with different backgrounds and cultures all sharing the passion for negotiation.
