Welcome to the Center for Negotiation

Center for Negotiation


The Center of Negotiation (CFN) in the College of Business Administration at Texas A&M University-Kingsville is designed to provide education and training in the theory and practice of negotiation and dispute resolution. The ability to constructively solve problems, create mutual gain, control emotions, and creatively build workable agreements is a valuable skill in today’s business world. 


The CFN offers both classroom and conference rooms for seminars and workshops. It has three Wi-Fi enabled video cameras, each with shotgun microphones and either floor or tabletop tripods. These can be used to record simulated negotiations to help participants improve their negotiating presence.  Web seminars can also be provided for groups that are unable to be on campus.
