The MIT Edge
True to the deeply analytical and quantitative MIT style, the material in this program is based on extensive scientific research by Professor Curhan and his colleagues. Professor Curhan is renowned not only for his engaging interactive teaching style, but also for his pioneering research on the social and psychological components of negotiation.  His research includes topics such as: conceptions of fairness, concern for personal integrity, lasting reputations, company loyalty, preference change during the course of a negotiation, norms for appropriate negotiating behavior, and relational dynamics among negotiators who interact multiple times.


"Successful negotiation is about communication. When you find creative ways of meeting other people's goals, they won't stand in the way of yours."
Professor Jared R. Curhan

A Participant Point Of View

Participant Jeff Ton shares his experience and lessons learned at Negotiation for Executives. "Of all the classes, seminars, and workshops I have ever attended, I have to rank Professor Curhan near the top when it comes to educators who can captivate, entertain, and educate, even a very difficult subject like negotiation for executives. . . . In addition to [the lessons learned], I took away some very valuable relationships with others in the class. To me, that is the way MIT enlarges the pie … students gain tremendous insights and have access to some of the greatest minds in business, with the added bonus of meeting and forming relationships with professionals from across the globe.
