Omaha, NE (PRWEB) April 4, 2011
Students can now earn a graduate certificate in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution in as soon as eight months, taught by the same highly credentialed faculty that teaches in the NDR master's program at Creighton University. The certificate, which requires 14 credit hours and a one-week residency, is based on the innovative and collaborative approach to conflict resolution developed by Creighton's Werner Institute.
The program combines foundational principles and advanced theories of conflict resolution strategies with practical applications. The online graduate certificate program meets a strong need for professionals in a wide variety of positions and fields, including HR and labor relations, business, government, the military, health care, relief and peacemaking organizations, insurance, criminal justice, and more.
The curriculum provides an intensive approach to conflict resolution and negotiation training through simulated role-playing, case studies, and other approaches. Students learn to deal successfully with real-world conflict using tools and techniques grounded in negotiated problem-solving, policy and principles of conflict management and mediation.
The Creighton online graduate certificate in Negotiation and Dispute Resolution is an interdisciplinary program that promotes an advanced understanding of how to bring parties together and reach optimal solutions. Students will learn to evaluate and manage potentially difficult situations from a broad perspective rather than a narrow view that simply identifies specific grievances between parties.
