Susan K. Tietz/McDonough Manufacturing Company Business Communication Lab
Schneider Hall Room 216
Susan K. Tietz/McDonough Manufacturing Company Business Communication Lab is a state-of-the-art facility where students can use the latest technologies to prepare and deliver oral presentations in a simulated business environment. All of the Department of Business Communication’s oral presentation courses are taught in the lab. Students in these courses are required to deliver a variety of presentations—presenting individually before a group, presenting as a team to a group, conducting a roundtable, and participating in a business meeting.
In addition to the oral presentation course, students in the MBA and Entrepreneur programs and selected integrated classes use the facility for the oral presentation segments of their programs/classes. The lab is also available twenty-five hours per week for students to practice outside of class time. A lab assistant is available to videotape students’ practice sessions and provide them with suggestions for improving their presentations.
