Although many organisations use the main language of the country in which they are based to carry out their work, others may use another language that is spoken by the majority of those involved. In many cases this is English, since it is now widely spoken in the business community around the world.

The aim of this course is to enhance your ability to communicate with other people in English, both as a manager in your own organisation and as a student. The course will help you develop the ability to read and understand complex documents in English, and to create documents of your own that are appropriate for the global business environment. It will also help you develop the ability to participate comfortably in business situations where English is spoken, understanding other people’s contributions and making contributions of your own. You will therefore be asked to undertake a number of activities involving reading, writing, listening and speaking. The first activity involves reading and writing.

In management the ability to communicate clearly and confidently is of key importance. This course, Communication, management and your own context, looks at the role of language in management communication, and helps you identify areas of English language you may need to develop for work or when studying for a management qualification such as an MBA. It includes reading, writing, listening and speaking activities based on material related to the field of management, and encourages you to relate these to your own work context.
