Business Communications (BCM)
Provides practical experience in communication techniques required in a business setting. Students write business documents and give oral presentations based on cases that stimulate actual business communication needs. Different strategies for spoken and written communication are analyzed and utilized in individual and group presentations. Assignments include detailed written reports, memoranda, business letters, extemporaneous speeches, one-on-one discussions, group presentations, and oral presentations of written reports. Conference hours are scheduled outside of class to discuss each student's communication needs and to guide the student in the process of preparing a detailed report.
