Course description

AMA - American Management Association

Business Communication Certificate Program

Apply well-honed communication techniques to navigate common work challenges. This distinctive certificate program incorporates skill practice, role-play activities and real-time feedback to help you take your communication skills to the next level. Using real-life workplace scenarios in a supportive environment, you’ll practice communicating with authenticity and clarity as you choose the best way to communicate the message you want to convey. You’ll be challenged to step up and be seen—and analyze how you view and respond to people.

To fully utilize and feel comfortable with the new voice you’ve discovered, you’ll finish the program by engaging in a capstone activity where you’ll apply the concepts and skills you’ve learned to a real-life scenario.
