Communication Skills are Universally Valuable

In the work environment, you need more than rudimentary communication skills to be successful. You need to be articulate in both the written and spoken word. Recruiters from all industries and sectors tell us that excellent communication skills are what set an employee apart from the rest and are strongly considered in promotions. 

To ensure students graduate with the strong communication skills necessary to flourish in the workplace, the CBE Writing Proficiency Program and Writing Lab were developed by the College of Business and Economics with support from McCormick & Company.
