This course is designed to teach students effective business communication skills. I learned how to think critically when approaching business problems, how to communicate effectively (both orally and in writing), and how the responsibilities of individuals and organizations play out ethically, legally, and socially. This course applies to my future aspirations as a consultant in the technology field because one of the major keys to being an effective consultant is to know how to communicate your ideas. Because of this course, I am now confident in both my oral skills (presentations, talking with others, business etiquette, etc.) and written skills (cover letters, reports, emails, etc.).
BA 2101: Professional Business Strategies
This course is designed to teach students how to develop important career competencies and help students learn and apply strategies to ensure a successful transition into the working life after college. I learned how to accelerate my personal development, become more aware of my career and industry, and communicate in writing, visually, and non-verbally. This course applies to my future aspirations as a consultant in the technology field because I learned how to market myself as an individual and pursue excellence at my job. Although this was only a one-credit course, I strongly believe this was one of the most important courses I have taken so far in college. This course helped me develop my development-oriented mindset, and inspired me to apply my value for growth into my professional life. I am excited to continue to apply what I’ve learned for my next three years of college and my transition into the working life.
