This nine-week course is designed for students who are either currently working professionals or for those who are seeking work. It follows a Case-Based Learning curriculum. This means that students will read several stories throughout the semester about business scenarios. They will work in groups to analyze the cases, discuss issues, and make decisions. Students will also get an opportunity to take on the role of someone involved in the case, which gives them a chance to reflect on the case’s impact on key players and stakeholders.
A Case-Based Learning curriculum gives students an opportunity to refine their communication skills in the context of a realistic business scenario. In this course, students will work on comparing and contrasting alternate options and opposing views, taking notes in a group meeting, expressing a well-structured opinion with supporting reasons, and evaluating a service or product. In addition, students will write a formal business letter. This course ends with individual persuasive presentations.
Before taking this course, students should be able to speak in paragraph-length discourse in both informal and formal situations. They should be able to use detailed examples to support their opinions and preferences. They should also be able to write several paragraphs with clear connections between ideas. In addition, students should be able to understand the main idea and many details in straightforward spoken and written texts.
