Unformatted text preview: Business Communication reader Year 1 Fast Track VWO, July 2009 Foreword: This is the Business Communication reader for year 1 IBMS Fast track VWO Business Communication (BCN) is the subject in which English is taught as the means of communication in a business setting. In this first year, the first two years of the BCN programme of the regular stream have been compressed, by selecting the most relevant elements of this programme. It looks like this: Block 1: Basic Presentation Skills and Advanced Writing Skills. Block 2: Business Correspondence and Meeting Techniques (including the Language of Meetings, and Writing Minutes) Block 3: Business Correspondence continued and Persuasive Presentations Block 4: Negotiating Skills and Report Writing. Students in the fast track get 7 ECTS worth for Competencies Acquired Elsewhere. We assume that students have acquired skills in: Grammar (worth 3 ECTS) Basic Writing skills (2 ECTS) Basic Speaking/Pronunciation (2 ECTS) Students are expected to be able to prove that they have these skills. As this is the fast track , students are expected to take initiative, be curious and be able to act and study independently, carrying out tasks as described in the reader, and explained (and added to) further in class. If not, the speed necessary to finish this condensed programme would be impossible.
