Business English stresses the writing of effective business communications. Students learn how to write request, response, transmittal, and confirmation letters and memos; letters to customers, prospective customers, and suppliers; administrative and public relations communications; and human resources communications. There are also assignments dealing with employment letters, résumés, and business reports.
As students are required to complete numerous writing assignments in this course, students should have a solid foundation in English grammar and mechanics before taking this subject. There are 8 examinations in Business English. Poe and Fruehling, Business Communication: A Case Method Approach and EMCParadigm.
