This course focuses on increasing one's competencies in oral communication and presentation.
Developing and executing effective communication strategies is essential in a variety of business
settings. Business leaders are often expected to present their message with confidence and clarity to
employees, clients, partners, investors and the public. This highly interactive, practical course will help
students develop confidence in their public speaking skills through weekly presentations and
assignments, lectures and discussions, guest speakers, simulated activities, and filmed feedback.
Students will be given the opportunity to present both individually and as part of a team. We will
explore the essentials of communication strategy and persuasion: audience analysis, message
construction, communicator credibility, and delivery. Students at all levels of mastery of public
speaking will benefit from this course.
