The Business Communication course will show young scholars the right way to write memos, letters, and reports. They’ll have the chance to see their writing improve, from grammar and mechanics to style. Lessons include techniques for writing informational, persuasive, sales, employment, and good and bad news communications, to both internal and external audiences – with practice analyzing those audiences. Finally, they’ll explore the current business communication technology toolkit, including desktop publishing, videoconferencing, and more.
