This is a project-based class that allows for student-directed learning of the communication skills needed to be successful in the modern business world. The goal of the class is to simulate real-world situations in which students will need to communicate their ideas in a clear and orderly fashion. It is best to think of this class as one long continuous project that attempts to mimic the order of communication found in a business environment. From emailing business partners, to discuss preliminary arrangements on the phone, to running meetings/negotiations and writing executive summaries of the results.
