Business Communications Certificate

The Business Communications Certificate is designed for those already in a professional environment that wish to improve their communication skills, and for those individuals interested in entering the business world. In today's business environment, effective communication is vital to success: yours and your organization.

Successful managers know how to communicate clearly, accurately and effectively. Poor communication skills, on the other hand, often restrict otherwise talented people from getting ahead in the business world. This Business Communication Certificate is designed to provide students with the skills needed to become effective communicators. Participants will develop and enhance their written, verbal, interpersonal communication skills and presentation techniques, to ensure success in any business environment.

The Business Communication Certificate requires the successful completion of six courses. Students have the option of completing the entire certificate online if they wish to do so.

When you have completed the required courses in the certificate program, you need to apply to graduate.  Please contact the Registration Office at with your name, student number, and program name in order to receive your certificate.
