Business CommunicationsThe Business Communication Certificate is designed for experienced professionals, those already in the field that wish to improve their communication skills, and for individuals interested in entering the business environment.

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.
