Enhance your career with the essentials of business messaging.
Today’s business environment requires people who can communicate well in person and electronically. This is more than composing emails or providing customer service; it involves effectively communicating goals and objectives - and the means of achieving those goals and objectives - within an organization, within a team, or to key constituents such as clients or shareholders.
The business communications curriculum gives students a solid understanding of business fundamentals supplemented by a variety of courses offered by the Communications and Journalism department focusing on:
- how to persuade and put forth particular points of view
- how to produce media in all forms
- the cultural variables involved in communication
- technology in today’s workplace.
As a student in the business communications program, you can take advantage of a wide variety of internships in the Twin Cities, and many students enjoy further networking through the activities of on-campus clubs such as PRSSA, Ad Fed, AMA and the Communication Club.
