Business Writing Skills



This course introduces you to the concepts of business writing skills, communication fundamentals and suggests standard structures for key documents.

Everyone needs to be able to write effectively, be it at work, at home or in social environments. This is even truer of business communications. Business communications have a lot in common with the production of academic research papers, dissertations, and theses, although they need to be more concise and practical. The way in which you present your written communications can have a profound effect on your personal and business career. Each of us has the ability to improve the way we communicate and written skills are a key part of this requirement.
