  • Which classes do you teach online?

    MANG 664: Business Negotiations

  • What do you want students in your courses to learn? What is the learning outcome or objective?

    The goals of the course are for you to develop knowledge of the negotiation process, develop and practice your skills as a negotiator, and reflect on your experience to identify strengths and set goals for continued skill development.

    Students will be able to demonstrate knowledge of negotiation terms and concepts, apply behavioral theories to develop a negotiating strategy, and explain the process for mediating a dispute between two parties.

  • What advice would you give to those considering this online MBA program?

    In considering an online MBA, my first advice is to seek a program accredited by AACSB

    International. Longwood's College of Business and Economics is among the 5% of schools worldwide accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Longwood's MBA faculty are highly qualified, caring, and responsive to the needs of our online learners.

    My second piece of advice is to be a proactive student. Courses in our online MBA program are seven weeks in duration. The seven-week courses allow students to focus on one or two courses at a time (depending on whether the student is part-time or full-time). This also means that the student must be actively engaged in the class, beginning with the first day of each course. Students should also be assertive in asking questions as needed. Our faculty are available to support your learning experience.
