BUS 308 — Communicating in Business
This course builds a bridge from students’ general education to the work they do in the field of business. With the aim of preparing students for both professional life and graduate work, this writing-intensive course introduces disciplinary strategies for preparing routine business correspondence, investigating provocative issues, and communicating to others about them. In this way, the course offers students time to learn and to practice more advanced skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening; using appropriate software support in presentations; and mastering information literacy in the field of business. The course emphasizes fundamental principles of communication with time-on-task and real-world, discipline-specific models for communication tasks.
