Nelson Mandela International Negotiations Competition
The purpose of the annual NBLSA Nelson Mandela International Negotiations Competition is to hone vital negotiation skills. Competition problems are selected in an effort to illuminate issues affecting the globe. Negotiating these cross-border transactions and disputes helps prepare students for negotiation in their future careers.
