Being an effective communicator in business, whether professional, personal, small, or large, is a key characteristic in a successful relationship. Developing the ability to communicate ideas, problems, solutions, achievements, and engage other team members is not inherent, but a learned skill. In the Business Communications Certificate Program, students will learn about typical barriers to effective communication and guidelines for overcoming them. Students will also learn the importance of business and email etiquette, grammar, telephone skills, business writing, effective presentations, and focus on advanced interpersonal communications.

In order to be effective in business communications, students need to understand the characteristics of good interpersonal communications.
