What is TNC?
The Negotiation Challenge (TNC) is one of the most established international negotiation competitions. Over the years, TNC has hosted the world’s best student negotiators from leading universities, allowing them to share their passion and compete against each other in realistic negotiation situations.

Based on the extensive experience in designing and organizing negotiation competitions, The Negotiation Challenge launched also a global negotiation competition for professionals.

TNC for professionals rests on solid academic foundations of its founders and operates in the same proven format. It gathers world’s best professional and passionate negotiators and offer them an opportunity to demonstrate their negotiation mastery and compare their skills with their like-minded counterparts from around the world.

Due to its global reach, open, impartial and highly competitive character combined with rigorous scientific approach, The Negotiation Challenge is an unofficial World Championship in Negotiation.
