This course also addresses writing and rhetoric in the business world as students demonstrate application of writing principles from the classroom to real-world experiences and observations. Writing will grow out of different purposes as students engage in several writing assignments, including a literature response and application, rhetorical analyses, a research-based inquiry essay demonstrating proper analyses of purposeful information and sources, following appropriate documentation, a business writing portfolio, and a personal philosophy statement reflecting character building and personal development.
