World Negotiation Championship first time in Paris (13-14 April 2012)

The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) becomes more international +++ A global group of participants negotiates at attractive venues in the French capital +++ HHL and IESEG as organizers of the world championship

One negotiation chases the next one. The Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel has got her hands full. She discussed with the President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, the implementation of a financial transaction tax and struggled with the head of the ECB, Mario Draghi, for the rescue of the Euro.

The World Championship of Negotiation (TNC) is an esteemed platform on which students from countries across the world debate on relevant international topics. For the first time, TNC will be held in Paris from 13-14 April 2012. Twelve teams, each team consisting of three students, negotiate at different venues such as the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce), the campus of IESEG School of Management, or at Parisian street cafés to win the prestigious TNC cup. The event is proudly organised by both HHL - Graduate School of Management and French IESEG School of Management.

For the upcoming event, student teams from notable Business and Law Schools from all over the world are expected to participate, among others are Harvard Law School (USA), Aarus Business School (Denmark), BI Norwegian School of Management (Norway), King's College (Great Britain), Kyoto University (Japan), National Law School of India University (India), Reykjavik University (Iceland), University of Georgia School of Law (USA), or Warsaw School of Economics (Poland).
