This course aligns with NUCB's mission statement to educate innovative and ethical leaders who possess a ‘Frontier Spirit.'

The main goal of this course is to prepare you to learn your business writing skills in English. Since you will be expected to write an emails and memos in English throughout your career, it is important that you are able to deliver your messages clearly in writing.
In order to express yourself clearly when writing in English, you need to have a well-developed vocabulary, adequate knowledge of English grammar as well as the ability to apply that knowledge to your writing, and an understanding of reader/writer expectations in English.
Readers expect writers to follow certain conventions, and meeting these expectations will help you communicate your ideas more effectively to your audience.
