Interest Based Negotiations develops students’ interest-based negotiation skills and strengthens their knowledge of intellectual property rights. The education combines faculty lectures with student participation in a role-playing scenario stimulating a realistic DoD acquisition. The scenario is designed to illustrate many issues that commonly arise in real procurement negotiations. Students are assigned one of six roles, which include both government and contractor characters. The students will gain knowledge of intellectual property rights, interest-based negotiation, interactive exercises, and debriefing sessions after each round of negotiation in the scenario.
