Career success and leadership rely on excellence in business communication. Communication transcends all human endeavors and determines their outcome, value, and success. Skillful communication is the art of strategic adaptation and inclusion; it is the launch-pad for establishing a professional presence in this world to make a difference.

BUCO courses prepare students for a world driven by communication by applying theory to practical challenges in the professions, including the art of creating strategic messages for diverse audiences, leading successful dialog, networking and connecting with stakeholders across cultures and utilizing multiple media.
