Corporate communication majors develop skills that make them “most likely to succeed.” The Wall Street Journal reports that leaders in corporations and industry consistently rank communication skills among the most needed in the workplace. They identify communication deficiencies as extremely common among employees and responsible for significant problems with efficiency, safety and other concerns.
As a result, corporate communication majors enter the workforce with an edge, having highly developed communication skills. These skills allow them positive recognition and upward mobility as they excel on the job.
Corporate communication majors receive interdisciplinary training courses in management and marketing from the University’s award-winning Donald L. Harrison College of Business.
Although many majors train with a specific career in mind, the skills developed transfer to a variety of careers, enabling graduates to thrive in today’s marketplace where most professionals can expect to change careers several times.
