Who stands the negotiating test the best? Which college team uses the most effective negotiating strategies? Which team has the most sophisticated arguments and the most skilled communicators? The answers to these questions - and more - will be revealed at The Negotiation Challenge (TNC), taking place at HHL from 11-14 March 2010.
Teams from renowned business schools, colleges and universities all over the world have battled through the early rounds and in March business and law students will finally face each other in Leipzig. The list of participating schools so far is: Aarhus Business School (Denmark), Alfa University Belgrade (Serbia), Belarus State University (Belarus), HHL - Leipzig Graduate School of Management (Germany), IESEG School of Management (France), University of California Hastings (USA), Bucerius Law School/WHU (Germany), Harvard Law School, Georgetown Law (both USA), European Master in Law and Economics, National Law Institute University Bhopal and National Law School India Bangalore (both India).

International exchange in striking venues in Leipzig
True to the motto "lead by example", TNC is about giving students a framework in which they can test themselves by competitively negotiating in teams against others and learning in the process. TNC organizing committee member Michael Römer says: "We've managed to secure Leipzig Central Stadium, the Moritzbastei, the Opera House and the Old Town Hall as venues for the world negotiating championships, and the topics being negotiated in each venue will match the surroundings. The final will be particularly special; it will be held on 13 March in the Bundesverwaltungsgericht, the Federal Administrative Court, which is one of Germany's five supreme courts."
The first two rounds of negotiations will be held on 12 March in HHL's City Campus and in the Central Stadium. Teams that have existed until that point will be broken up. "We want to confront the students with unexpected situations, just as happens out in the real world. And mixing up the teams means that the participants get to know more people," explains Dr Remigiusz Smolinski, Country Manager at mobile.international GmbH and member of TNC jury and co-initiator of the competition.
On 13 March, the participants will go through two more qualifying rounds in their original teams. These rounds will be held in the Moritzbastei and the Opera House, deciding the two best teams to go forward to the final to battle for the title. The jury is composed of lawyers and entrepreneurs as well as professors from HHL and other European schools. The final will take place in the imposing Bundesverwaltungsgericht, beginning at 17.00. The winners are awarded a trophy and the title "The Great Negotiator 2010."
About The Negotiation Challenge (TNC)
The Negotiation Challenge was created in 2007 as part of a joint project run by students and doctoral students at HHL and Harvard Law School. HHL recognized the importance of teaching negotiating skills very early on and with TNC was one of the pioneers in the subject in Europe.Weitere Informationen:

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
