Knowledge @ Wharton
MGMT291 - Negotiation and Conflict Resolution
This course examines the art and science of negotiation, with additional emphasis on conflict resolution. Students will engage in a number of simulated negotiations ranging from simple one-issue transactions to multi-party joint ventures. Through these exercises and associated readings, students explore the basic theoretical models of bargaining and have an opportunity to test and improve their negotiation skills.
MGMT653 - Field Application Project
FAP is an experiential-based course where learning is done outside of the classroom. It is unique in its lack of a classroom setting all meetings take place in a professor's office in small teams of 4 to 6 students. Teams are faced withreal-time issues of outside organizations and work with faculty and host managers to construct innovative solutions. Solutions are integrative and cross-functional in nature. We encourage creative thinking giving students wide access towhat we call "area of expertise" faculty. Depending on the project scope we help students arrange meetings with professors who are experts in their field. Host organizations range from large multinational firms to start-ups. A significant percentage of the projects are with non-profits and organizations focused on social causes.
MGMT783 - Strategies for Economic Inclusion
The majority of humans, estimated to exceed 4 billion people, exist on incomes less than $300 per year. Over 1 billion of these poor exist on less than a $1 per day. Many poor are denied the opportunity to engage in the global business environment. Constraints they face include those of capital, knowledge, and services.
This course is designed to attract those who are interested in the market for the poor. It will provide a managerial guide to those who may want to pursue careers in this space. The course is designed to present a multi-functional view of decisions managers will face.
