*Karen Reardon, “WAC: A Shared Responsibility-How Are Business Student Educators Responding?” 

Description: Because one’s ability to communicate in writing is so critical in business, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, 2013) (“AACSB”), the organization that accredits business schools, recognizes its importance in the standards to which its members must adhere.  The greater business community, the future employers of college business students, shares this concern. If student writing is not up to par upon graduation, employers must take on the task of writing remediation. Companies spend as much as $3.1 billion each year in an effort to improve worker-writing skills. (Graham, 2013)  In this session, we will discuss classroom experiences with business student writing and share ideas for how to get our students to be workplace ready writers.
