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 one more writing workshop, 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. Several sessions will be offered during the first two weeks of Mod 2. You will be assigned a session after your one-on-one writing coach appointment during the week of Orientation.
