PON GLOBAL
A New Executive Education Offering
from the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School

The Program

PON Global is an innovative negotiation training program offered in cities around the world by the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School (PON). The course is led by an on-site PON instructor, and it contains dynamic videos featuring key lessons from PON faculty.

Along with accomplished leaders from your region, you’ll broaden your understanding of negotiating concepts and acquire proven negotiating techniques through a learning format that includes:

  • Interactive classroom sessions led by a PON instructor
  • Dynamic negotiation exercises and discussions
  • Video-based modules featuring world-class PON instructors
