Master Negotiations

“I've been provided with some real-life negotiating experience — and now I want more.” — Les Hurley, sales executive at Red Hat Negotiating — it's a crucial skill for business and everyday situations. In her three-day Master Negotiation course, Professor Robin Pinkley teaches you powerful strategies and techniques that effective negotiators use.

Highlight: The Latino Leadership Initiative

While the Latino market is exploding, Latino leadership in America's C-suites lags behind. Rising Latino Leaders is one program of SMU Cox's Latino Leadership Initiative, which was created to narrow the gap by helping businesses boost high-potential managers up the talent pipeline — all the way to the C-suite.

Highlight: Transformational Leadership

Join Professor Simon Mak as he walks you through a session about Strategic Thinking for the Transformational Leadership Program (previously Certificate in Leadership) where he provides a basic understanding of tools used for strategic thinking in business, including SWOT, Porter's 5 Forces, Business Growth 2x2, Value/Effort 2x2, Design Thinking, and the Business Model Canvas. The tools provided in class will teach you to think about what to do, why you should do it, and when you should do it.
