The course seeks to deliver essential knowledge about negotiating and presentation techniques by using the method of role playing, simulations and other rhetorical exercises. It gives students the opportunity to practice common presentation situations (TDK presentation, project presentation, thesis defense, business presentation, etc.) while the lecturers give immediate, on-the-spot feedback to help their progress in a tailor-made fashion. The subject addresses the fundamental types and strategies of negotiation, the pitfalls of certain negotiating situations and their proposed remedies. Lectures aim to bridge the gap between theory and practice by using case study method and group exercises simulating real-life situations in order to be able to improve the students’ negotiating skills to prepare for the challenges of the labour market.
