Flexibility, the ability to win interlocutors’ trust, and familiarity with critical and responsible thinking are key characteristics of good negotiation and communication in all areas of work. Develop these skills through cooperative activities and practical simulations throughout the course!

The Master will allow students to acquire and/or develop specific English language skills in operational and managerial areas where intermediation and negotiation between parties are crucial.

Priority will be given to international relations at commercial and diplomatic level, proceeding from the assumption that key characteristics of good communicators at all levels of linguistic competence and in all areas of work include flexibility, ability to win interlocutors’ trust, and familiarity with critical and responsible thinking.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to apply acquired skills to their areas of work, whether private or public, profit or non-profit. They will also have acquired the means to manage wide-ranging commercial, diplomatic and relational contacts at both national and international level.

The Master will thus train specialists in economic and diplomatic communication in English, since relational networks in international professional contexts require cooperation between parties seldom sharing the same linguistic-cultural backgrounds.
