Professional Writing in Business
The ability to write effectively is a highly prized professional skill: it plays a key role in successful business planning, strategizing, and development; it facilitates productive relations with internal and external stakeholders; and contributes significantly to the preservation of an organization's professional image and reputation.
Classes focus on developing your ability to draft key business documents—including reports, plans, and proposals—for senior managers, colleagues, clients, business owners, business partners, and investors. You will also engage in several in-class activities that focus on realistic business communication situations and allow for discussion and debate with your peers. Grammar and mechanics will also be covered, along with techniques for honing your style and developing self-editing skills.
These assignments and activities will enable you to create professional and influential business documents using communication strategies to inform, persuade, and motivate others.
- The writing process: planning, composing, and revising
- Analyzing your audience

- Writing in teams
