Communication is more important than ever in our increasingly complex and diverse economies.
And while today's students are entering the workforce with the field-specific knowledge and skills to hit the ground running, those who can pair this technical savvy with strong communication and interpersonal skills are truly positioned for success.
That's where we come in. The Business and Professional Communications faculty teach communications content, skills, attitudes, and behaviors that help Isenberg students excel in their coursework and impress prospective employers.
Isenberg undergraduates take the following three core communications-based courses:
- The first-year seminar Transitions employs a design-thinking framework that helps students adopt a vocational mindfulness and strategies to successfully navigate their college years.
- In the second year, Career and Professional Development helps students develop the career documents, networking and interview skills, and professional polish needed to launch fruitful internship and job searches.
- Management Communication, which fulfills the university's junior-year writing requirement, is a small, writing-intensive course that emphasizes real-world writing and speaking assignments that prepare students for today's dynamic business environments.
These three courses, with curricula designed in an interlocking, multi-year arc, deliver developmentally appropriate content to more than 3,000 students each academic year.
In addition, our faculty offer Isenberg undergraduate and graduate students and faculty a range of communication-based services, from one-on-one tutoring to workshops, guest lectures, and other collaborations, all spearheaded through our Business Communication Center.
We're thrilled to impart crucial knowledge and skills to Isenberg students, to give them a competitive edge as they enter the marketplace, and to play a role in helping them achieve a fulfilling, meaningful, and joyous future. We look forward to working with you soon!
