April was a busy month for negotiation at UConn. The Law School and the Business School cooperatively sent UConn teams to two international business law negotiation competitions.
Two weeks ago, Steven Lin (JD), Brooke Tinnerello (JD) and Christopher Digiacomo (MBA) represented UConn at the Negotiation Challenge in San Francisco. They negotiated against teams from China, Germany, Iceland, Spain and India.
This past weekend, Tyler Conklin (JD), Erin Peterson (JD/MBA) and Michael Carbonetta (MBA) represented UConn at the Warsaw Negotiation Round. They negotiated against teams from Poland, England, India, France and Hong Kong.
In both competitions, our teams represented UConn extremely well, earning praise, pointers on negotiation strategy and a wealth of international networking contacts.
Please join us in congratulating both teams and thanking members of the Negotiation & Dispute Resolution Society for their help in preparing our competitors!
