Business Communication Certificate

Credential Earned: 

In any field, success depends on being able to communicate complex ideas with both nuance and depth. In this certificate program, you will master the skills to communicate your ideas for maximum impact through professional presentations, reports, and impromptu conversations. By strengthening your approach to written and oral communications, investigating your audience and situational context, and defining your communication goals, you will learn to employ the ideal communication method for each unique business situation you encounter. Throughout this program, you will be given the opportunity to put your coursework to the test as you practice writing emails, reports, and presentations, while also honing the skills often perceived as most difficult: speaking in front of an audience, engaging listeners, and persuading others to support your initiatives. By the end of this program, you will have put powerful best practices to work for you on some of the most critical — and difficult — challenges of effective communication.
