Introductory Writing Workshops

The Vanderbilt Business Communication Academy is required for all first-year MBAs at the Owen Graduate School of Management. In addition to the Academy writing workshop offered in Orientation, you must complete two more writing workshops: Professional Business Writing and at least one additional workshop most relevant to your career.

Professional Business Writing will focus on writing strategy and persuasion to establish your credibility and brand. The workshop’s interactive writing exercises will help you master the four Cs of business writing: clear, concise, complete, and compelling. Four sessions will be offered during the first two weeks of Mod 2. You will choose the session you prefer during your one-on-one writing coach appointment during the week of Orientation.
