The final portfolio project involves writing about a negotiations-related topic. The purpose of this project is to explore one of the topics in more depth that have been discussed in this course. This will allow you to apply the concepts learned in the course and also to demonstrate your understanding of key negotiation topics. For instance, you might decide to describe and analyze a particular real-life negotiation (Middle East peace negotiations, a major merger and acquisition negotiation, etc.) or research any topic of particular interest to you, such as cross-cultural negotiation styles, the importance and impact of nonverbal communication, gender differences, negotiation styles, etc. You will need to obtain approval of your project topic by the end of Module 4.
The final portfolio project should be 6-8 pages in length. This does not include the required cover page and reference page. A cover page, abstract, in-text citations, and a reference page are all required with your submission. In addition, you need to include a minimum of five scholarly sources. Your paper must be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
