What students say about ZSEM?

Its amazing and rare that one country has all the beauty in the world. I will never forget my travel experience in Croatia.

The program also involved trips to significant companies and factories in Croatia as well as a trip to the US embassy and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. Combining the theoretical knowledge gained from lectures and learning about the experiences companies go through has really given me a deeper vision of how negotiations are done in the true business world.

As a participant in the 2015 Summer Negotiations program, I can really say that this program was academically and socially a real deal. The academic aspect of the program was completely fulfilling, with lectures by George Siedel from the University of Michigan and other prestigious lecturers. The program also involved trips to significant companies and factories in Croatia as well as a trip to the US embassy and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. Combining the theoretical knowledge gained from lectures and learning about the experiences companies go through has really given me a deeper vision of how negotiations are done in the true business world. As the program was held during the summer, it has also given participants and myself the opportunity to travel and meet new cultures as Croatia is one of Europe’s famous summer destinations. Although the program was only a week long, I can say that I learned a lot regarding negotiations and dispute resolutions as well as meeting friends for life from around the world.

The Summer Negotiations program is the must take for any student that has aspirations in a business world. Through this course you will understand that negotiations are part of everyday life and learn the tips and tricks how to perform better in those. Academic background and a practical approach makes it easy for a student to grasp the concepts and apply them whenever needed in future.

Professor Siedel was extremely interesting and forced his students to think in new and creative ways. He was very engaging during our lectures and I loved the negotiation component to the class because it allowed me to apply skills learned in class in a practical negotiation simulation setting
