The University of South Florida St. Petersburg College of Business is pleased to announce a three course Practitioner Certificate in Corporate Dispute Resolution in partnership with Rezoud Academy.

Rezoud Academy is an innovative provider of online and onsite corporate dispute resolution and technology-enhanced dispute resolution (TeDR™) educational programs and training for business professionals, business students, and corporate clients.

These highly interactive online certificate courses are taught by Rezoud Academy professors who bring together a wealth of knowledge and decades of experience in negotiation, facilitation, mediation, arbitration, and TeDR™ in the business community. Unlike traditional conflict resolution courses taught as part of a social science curriculum, Rezoud Academy courses focus specifically on understanding the dynamics of conflict in the business world and the dispute resolution and TeDR™ processes best suited to manage and resolve these types of conflict.

Persistent, pervasive or deep conflict in any business or organization is bad for its health.  It saps energy, consumes resources, and casts a negative image to its customer base. Business professionals with the skills and process knowledge to prevent, manage, and resolve both internal and external disputes will quickly become valuable leaders in their organizations when disputes inevitably arise.  The goal of each course is to send business students and seasoned business professionals into companies with the knowledge necessary to prevent and/or successfully resolve business disputes of all types. Through thought-leading professors, innovative and unique business oriented course offerings, incorporation of real world business conflict case studies and simulations, and the use of cutting-edge e-learning management systems, graduates of Rezoud Academy programs will be the go-to dispute resolution leaders in their organizations.

Each course in the certificate program is designed to accelerate the career of business professional from entry-level managers all the way up to C-suite executives. Regardless of vertical industry or corporate background, each course is especially beneficial to management-level professionals in the following roles:  human resources, IT, consulting, accounting, finance, healthcare, oil/gas, marketing, sales, entrepreneurship, and international business.

Enroll now to start this innovative program and advance your career by adding to your arsenal of dispute resolution skills and knowledge today!
