Negotiate two steps ahead
As calculated as a chess match, negotiations are complicated. Preparation is the key to securing the best outcome for yourself and for your organization.
In our Strategic Negotiation course, learn the foundational skills and knowledge needed to negotiate effectively and strategically. Discover your personal style and develop a systematic approach to a variety of challenging business situations through a set of interactive, increasingly complex mock negotiations. Build the confidence to navigate win-lose situations and transform them into win-win opportunities. Whether you negotiate on behalf of your organization or on behalf of yourself, this course will lead you to reliable techniques for securing better deals.

Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Programs, Carey Business School
Brian Gunia joined the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School in 2011. He is an Associate Professor in the research track. Brian studies three ways that people commonly jeopardize their careers: by acting unethically, negotiating ineffectively, and sleeping insufficiently. Instead of focusing on self-defeating choices themselves, however, he focuses on simple, theoretically-motivated measures that might enable individuals to act more ethically, negotiate more effectively, and sleep longer or better. Brian is the author of a negotiation blog called Life's Negotiable and a negotiation book called The Bartering Mindset. Brian founded the Johns Hopkins Business in Government (BIG) Initiative, and he currently serves as Academic Program Director for the full-time MBA program.
