Take Business Communication online at your own pace
ACE Credit®-recommended for 3.0 semester credits
Sophia's Business Communications course is designed to prepare you for a career in business by teaching you the essential communication skills you will need to succeed. The course covers personal image, such as distinguishing between formal and informal communication, and developing a professional demeanor for seeking a job and growing one’s career. An entire unit is devoted to ethics, covering issues such honesty, diversity, and understanding the limits and consequences of using other people’s work. You will learn about and demonstrate your ability to compose written communication that chooses an appropriate tone and language, and deliver an oral presentation that demonstrates your ability to engage an audience with verbal and nonverbal performance.
