Three Aarhus University students participate in international negotiation competition

A team of three master’s students from School of Business and Social Sciences has been selected among almost sixty teams from all over the world to participate in The Negotiation Challenge in Iceland 10-12 April 2014.

The negotiation competition team comprises Marianne D. Kræmmer (Business Economics and Auditing), Rasmus Danielsen (Business Administration and Commercial Law) and Mona von Weitzel-Mudersbach (EU Business and Law) who receive support from Aarhus University providing a mentor who is helping both with the preparation for the event and at the actual competition in Reykjavik.

The three students have spent the last weeks practicing and preparing to meet the other teams at the negotiation tables. At locations such as The Blue Lagoon and The Viking Village the team will compete against other teams from Europe, the US, Kenya, India and China for the title ‘World Champion of Negotiation’.

The Negotiation Challenge was founded in 2007 as the first of its kind in Europe by among others Associate Professor Peter Kesting from Department of Business Administration. Mentor Rajiv Vaid Basaiawmoit, who participated in the competition in 2011, thinks that the team has a good chance of success, and should the team win the title, the 2015 Negotiation Competition will take place in Aarhus.
