The essence of the competition is to simulate negotiations on the conclusion of an international transaction or an employment contract, and the resolution of disputes arising from the implementation of an international contract. Each team consists of 4 students from 2 universities, representing in the negotiations both sides - the company and the client. Negotiations are conducted in English and are limited in time. The performance of the teams is evaluated by a panel of judges of three specialists.
The first day featured a master class by Joel Lee, professor of law at the National University of Singapore. The speaker presented the main aspects of negotiation, strategies and practical examples.
“Master classes by foreign experts make it possible to look at the problem from a different angle. It really motivates me! I am grateful to RUDN University for the opportunity to participate in such competitions!” says Anastasia Vereschagina, 2nd year student of the Moscow State Law Academy n.a.Kutafin.
“The lecture was quite interesting, It is important to remember that both parties can win in the negotiations and we must strive for this,” said Albert Khairutdinov, 4th year student at the RUDN University Law Institute
Who will be the best in the negotiations will be known on February 22.
We were not expecting the results we got this day, 40 students who love Russian language took the first step to learn Russian and they did great on their first day of classes! Tomorrow two more groups will start learning Russian without leaving their home countries, using the digital technologies of our Faculty!
“In mathematics, there are several ways to achieve a result — I always wonder how a student will solve a problem. And problems in computer science give more freedom of solutions, therefore computer science develops creative thinking ”, says Stanislav Strashnov, author of the modules "Mathematics“ and ”Informatics" of the Digital Preparatory Faculty of RUDN University.
The academic year at RUDN University traditionally begins on September 1. This is the first odd week of training. Classes will be held in two formats: face-to-face — in university classrooms and remotely.
