Professionals in a wide range of disciplines are likely to encounter situations which are fraught with conflict, whether the issue is dealing with community opposition to the development of a new facility, developing environmental standards, allocating limited resources to meet emerging societal needs or dealing with the conflicting demands and expectations of different stakeholders. This course is designed to enable students to develop consensus-building strategies that produce agreements that everyone can live with. The course utilizes case materials and examples drawn from different disciplines. (Formerly IST 905.)
"I took an intensive course online and found it to be very inclusive and accessible. The pace of the course was challenging at times, but it got easier as I continued to feel curious and ask questions. The discussion posts with other students helped a lot and the best part was learning from each other. I never want to stop learning."
