The Center for Business Communication helps to power up your success with guidance on business writing, public speaking, and team presentations:

  • Mastering the art of business writing: emails, case studies, executive summaries, memos and more
  • Speaking with confidence and authority
  • Planning and rehearsing individual and team presentations
  • Developing PowerPoint slides and advising on data visualization
  • Practicing elevator pitches and Q & A skills
  • Preparing for case competitions
  • Brainstorming as a team and persuading others of your most critical points
  • Understanding what professors expect in written work
  • Revising any written assignment at any stage
  • Overcoming nervousness when presenting


In both our peer-tutoring and our teaching within Kogod’s core curriculum, students learn one-on-one and in groups to communicate persuasively. They also practice providing thoughtful peer-to-peer advice, and working collaboratively to analyze and convey business solutions. 

Inspired by our students’ pursuit of knowledge, our Center provides a space to pilot discovery and innovation. With our coaching, students can collaboratively grow and refine their business knowledge into clearly communicated ideas that inspire change.

SUMMER HOURS

Our student peer consultants are off on their summer internships and adventures, so we don't offer face-to-face tutoring. Instead, please e-mail cbc@american.edu so we can advise you about the resources we provide over the summer. We will re-open for tutoring on Monday, September 9. Hope to see you soon at the CBC!
