Course Overview

In this course you will be examining the nature of business communication. You will start by examining simple emails; then you will learn how to be persuasive in your written communications. Unfortunately, not all communications will be positive and upbeat; for this reason, you will take a look at negative messages and how to manage them. In business today you can't escape presentations, so you will have the opportunity to prepare a PowerPoint deck. Finally, you will have the opportunity to work on your resume. You will be asked to write a resume and cover letter and conduct an interview. When you are finished with the course, you will have a solid appreciation for the importance of proper business communications.

About assignment length:

William Strunk (Strunk & White, 2000) said it best:

Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, and a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines, and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all sentences short, or avoid all detail and treat subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.

For this reason, BUS303 has no guidelines concerning assignment length. If an assignment is too short because of oversights and omissions, or too long because of redundancies and irrelevancies, then the grade will suffer. A business professional must know not only what to write, but also how much to write.
