New ‘Negotiator’ Master’s Program
Written by Bwog Staff
Beginning next fall, the School of Continuing Education will offer a Master of Science in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. No word on the rationale for establishing the program (Continuing Education Acting Dean Peter Awn gives some vague PR speak here), but perhaps Columbia is molding a team of crack mediators to help it defuse the controversy it seems so good at courting.
There’s an info session about the major in early April—will it train people for the corporate world, or for totally badass negotiating? Bwog imagines it’s the former, but holds out tentative hope for the latter.
