The mission of the Business Communication Lab is to help each student become a clear, concise, correct, persuasive and thoughtful writer and speaker.

Would you like to become a more effective business communicator?

The Business Communication Lab at the College of Business provides Business Communication Consultation to help students further develop their written communication skills, enhancing their professional presence. Consultants are available to work with students one-on-one, or with a small group, to help students develop business deliverables for class assignments.
