SCOPE x ELSA Negotiation Competition 2020


Do you want to get hands-on experience in negotiation and practice your presentation, debate and strategy skills? Do you want to be challenged and participate in a cross-faculty event, allowing you to broaden your scope?

On the 30th of April, SCOPE and ELSA Maastricht are jointly organizing their first Negotiation Competition. Teams of 4 students, made up of 2 students from SBE and 2 students from the Law Faculty, will compete by negotiating an Mergers & Acquisition case in front of a panel of professional jurors.

The competition is aimed at Law and SBE students, regardless of their stage of studies, who want to develop their negotiation skills, gain experience in debating before a panel of judges, and are eager to work on creative solutions to a fictive case. As for the structure of the competition, the participants receive a fictional case approximately 1-2 weeks prior to the competition. The procedure of the negotiation imitates that followed for real negotiations of M&As. All teams of participants will participate in semi-finals for which the panel of jurors will choose a winning team, which are in turn called to compete in the finals, taking place on the same day.

Don’t hesitate and sign-up individually before the 3rd of April! We will then get back to you very soon with the team allocations, the cases and practical information.
