All business relationships are essentially contracts, and a comprehensive understanding of contract law in the international context, and its commercial application, are essential elements in the effective management of the business to business interface.

Good contract management is a core competency of successful organisations.  The effective expenditure of money and resources is dependent on successful contract management activities: selecting the appropriate models, understanding the legal principles of creating a contract, managing each party’s rights and obligations, and dealing with claims and disputes are all key areas within this discipline.

  • Improve their understanding of contracting in an international context
  • Learn about different contracting strategies and how they transfer risk
