Role Plays allow students to practice real-world skills by assuming a specific role and interacting with other students who also play characters in the Exercise. Simulating a real business situation allows students to experiment and enhance their understanding of theories of negotiation and related topics.

We offer many 'paper' Role Plays that are available in both English PDF and English Hardcopy Black & White format, and we offer a single digital Role Play, Negotiating Equity Splits at UpDown. You can see the full listing by clicking on 'Role Plays' under 'Products' on the Educators website.

You may access the student version, or view, of a Role Play by adding a Free Trial of the Role Play to your account. To add a Free Trial of a Role Play, search for the Role Play, click the 'See a Preview' link.
