Business Communication

The business communication department at UW-Eau Claire provides students with the communication skills needed for a successful career. Whether our graduates are  writing  a resume, participating in a video conference or communicating through an online social network, the ability to communicate ideas is often the difference between success and failure. Communication skills are consistently rated at or near the top of most surveys designed to determine what employers value and seek in employees.
