Acquiring Business Communication Skills Necessary for Business Graduates

It is a fact that communication skills are imperative to success in business (Conrad amp. Newberry 2012, p. 112). However, when one delves on communication skills in the context of the business graduates, they need to realize that in the current time when the technology is poised to enhance the speed and urgency of business communication, business communication skills are expected to play a major role in influencing the career graphs of the future managers (Sigmar amp. Cooper 2011, p. S1). Thereby, this report intends to identify salient general communication skills and the form and scope they acquire in the arena of business communication while proceeding to elaborate on the value of these communication skills and their role in the world of business. In light of this analysis, this report eventually facilitates recommendations aimed at helping undergraduate students hone specific business communication skills.
The undergraduate students do need to bear in mind that the discipline of business communication happens to be a subset of the general communication, and hence, the proficiency that the business students acquire in business communication happens to be a great extent subservient to their expertise in the general communication skills. Thereby it will be pragmatic to consider the salient general communication skills, before proceeding to introduce the business communication skills.
