About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
In addition to the videos, readings, and podcast, learners will use their learned knowledge and newly acquired skills to solve/answer questions for "real" life cases. These cases are required and will be assessed by a Peer group. The last case in the Negotiation course, the student has an additional option to answer not only as a buyer but as a seller. That will bring more of a "real" life negotiation.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
