Business Writing II Course


Business Writing Reports CourseAs a business professional, you’ll probably be asked to create reports and present their findings. Unfortunately, good report writing and presentation preparation skills are usually learned “on-the-fly” through “trial-and-error”. If you’re looking to improve these skills, then this course is for you.

Business Writing II is a 6-week online business writing course designed to teach you how to write effective reports and presentations. You’ll learn basic writing techniques such as how to use active voice, how to apply the 6 C’s of writing, how to avoid using jargon or offensive phrases, and how to write with a YOU attitude! You’ll also learn about common report and presentation formats.

You’ll develop your report writing skills by practicing what you’ve learned in three assignments.

  • In assignment one, you’ll produce an informal report.
  • In assignment two, you’ll write a formal report.
  • In assignment three, you’ll produce a presentation based on one of your reports.
