October 2020 Online Courses


Event description

It was my first time studying about negotiations and the course really provided the main concepts and a solid foundation. Each unit is very well structured and they contain very interesting reading suggestions to deepen learning into each topic. I really enjoyed the Negotiation Skills course.
