In the "Age of Information", written communication is more important than it has ever been before. But the many communication possibilities offered by information technology do not replace the need to write clearly and correctly. Particularly in a business environment, effective written communication is essential both internally with colleagues and externally with customers.

The course covers both the rules of good writing and the appropriate use of different document types, such as E-mail, letters, memoranda and reports.
