Business Writing Course Online

This business writing course online, has been designed to provide a comprehensive yet concise introduction to a very specific and highly important contemporary corporate discipline.  Business communication is unique in its structure, tone and purpose – all of which must be studied at length to build professional-level proficiency. 

Businesses at all levels and spanning all contemporary sectors rely on consistently-effective and efficient communication for largely all essential operations.  The larger the business, the more intensive the communication demands, but in all instances the way in which communications are managed and optimised will play a key role in driving the business forward.  Public and private-sector organisations alike are constantly on the lookout for those with professional-level business communications knowledge and competencies. 

Over the course of five intensive modules, of this online business writing course,  candidates explore the immense power and influence of high quality written communications, while investigating the specifics of contemporary corporate memos, letters and other key documents.  Course content also introduced candidates to professional telephone communication strategies and a series of related challenges.

This business writing certificate online,  is delivered over five in-depth modules:

Module 1 – Fundamentals of Business Communication

The first course module introduces candidates to a series of business communication fundamentals, outlining and exploring the core elements of effective business documents.  Along with exploring a series of essential business mannerisms and courtesies, candidates explore sentence structure, word choice and how to professionally close written communications.

Module 3 – Writing Effective Emails

The fundamentals of writing effective emails from a business perspective enter the conversation in Module 3.  Along with an introduction to professional email management, candidates are guided through the most important skills, strategies and techniques for writing high-quality emails.  The importance of proofreading, spell-checking and grammar management in business communications is also discussed.

Module 4 – Writing Memos
