Business Communication Minor

Strong communication skills will propel your career upward

How we communicate is just as important as the business strategies and policies we implement. Unfortunately, because human communication is routine, we often don’t think about how our communication style can impact our business success. Polished written and oral communication and enhanced listening skills will make you a better leader in any organization.

The Business Communication minor is offered jointly by the College of Humanities, Arts & Sciences and the College of Business. The minor is a smaller concentration of courses and is an excellent complement to any business or non-business major.
