The State of Business Communication Course Development in the U.S.

Business and personal communication are seen as some of the fundamental cornerstones of developing a successful career. With proper communication it is possible to influence people, understand people, and share your views with others. Through communication we are able to understand and relate to each other in important ways that further not only our interests but the interests of others. Research helps colleges understand how current communication is being taught and the subject matter of those courses. According to Du-Babcock (2006), “ Business communication has established itself as an important subject area and has become an integral component of business and school curricula ” (p. 254).

Through the development of student’s communication abilities they are able to expand their horizons. ”The limits of my language means the limits of my world.” -Lu
