The subject provides students with the tools to articulate ideas and affect positive change through written communication in business contexts. This subject is designed to equip students with robust business literacy skills, so as to advance success both within the context of their higher-degree learning, and beyond (into their careers). The cascading development of business literacy is scaffolded against the changing nature of work and careers. Each week, students critically examine the substantial changes confronting the practice of business and work and explore issues related to artificial intelligence, robotisation, and the internet of things. By reflecting on and envisaging the way that these emerging trends will impact on students’ own careers, students build adaptability and career agility, while also furthering the timeless skill of impactful written communication.
