PON GLOBAL
A new Executive Education offering
from the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School

Supporting our mission to improve the theory and practice of negotiation around the world, the Program on Negotiation (PON) at Harvard Law School is pleased to launch a new and innovative blended learning program—PON Global. Composed of dynamic videos and video conferencing segments that feature senior PON faculty and facilitated by an on-the-ground, PON-certified instructor, this groundbreaking program will, for the first time ever, bring PON’s negotiation concepts, techniques, and curriculum to people around the world.

The Program

This new three-day program will take place at designated partner facilities in host countries, and will largely mirror the extremely popular Executive Education program that PON has offered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for more than 30 years.

In this program, participants will have the opportunity to test their beliefs and assumptions, overcome emotional and rational biases, examine complex negotiation scenarios, and discover a range of competitive and cooperative negotiation strategies. In addition to on-site instruction, the course includes innovative video lectures featuring the world’s leading negotiation professors. The course is designed to help participants more deeply understand negotiating concepts, acquire proven negotiating techniques, and have the opportunity to put their learning into practice through in-class exercises. In addition, there will be interactive web-based video sessions with expert faculty broadcast live from Harvard.

Building on a time- and road-tested curriculum that has been utilized by more than 30,000 executives, PON Global will provide a framework for negotiation—equipping participants to overcome barriers, manage conflict, and achieve better outcomes at the bargaining table.

The Requirements

The language of instruction for the program will be English. Participants must be able to communicate at a business level in English

The Certification

Upon successful completion of the program, all participants will receive an official certificate from the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.
