Increasing student skills through this practice of integration was highlighted by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) as an “effective practice” in its 2013 report to FAU’s College of Business:
“The Business communications component of the MBA Program, which includes the addition of a new course and the integration of business communications throughout the curriculum, has led to improved written and verbal skills.”
The College of Business is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB). Florida Atlantic University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).

Instructors as Coaches
GEB [3213, 6215, & 6217] instructors go beyond a classroom presence; they also offer coaching sessions in which they interact one-on-one with students. Such a focus on each student’s work helps the student better understand the issues and figure out ways, with the instructor’s help, to improve.
Instructors are available to help students with their presentations and writing assignments in their other courses and to answer questions for students when writing papers in their other courses.
Students can bring résumés, cover letters, or other work-related issues to review or discuss with their instructor(s).
"Developing excellent COMMUNICATION skills is absolutely essential to effective leadership. The leader must be able to share knowledge and ideas to transmit a sense of urgency and enthusiasm to others. If a leader can't get a message across clearly and motivate others to act on it, then having a message doesn't even matter."
- Gilbert Amelio, American Technology Executive
