Business Writing Course Syllabus:

This business writing course teaches the essential business writing best practices business people are using today to write clear, effective, professional business writing, including email, memos, letters, reports, and other documents.

Graduates report that they receive high praise for their business writing, and other employees begin to copy their style.
