“Negotiations (OIDD 291) gave me a wonderful taste for what academic life at Wharton is like, and it is definitely a program that I feel like I would enjoy and excel in. The interactive nature of Negotiations was one of the main factors of my enjoyment as after each homework reading, you got the opportunity to see the theories and strategies in action. I could definitely see myself in a career to do with negotiations in the future!”
