Organizational Communication Sequence
In today's environment, organizations face challenges of increasing reliance on technology, merging industries, issues of sustainability, and international globalization. This creates greater needs for organizational members to respond with creativity and learning, ethics and social responsibility, and balanced approaches to uncertainty and complexity. Organizational communication majors learn how to communicate effectively, creatively, and mindfully in this setting.
Students learn how to write clear business memos and reports, present persuasive corporate presentations, participate in and lead team discussion and decision making, manage organizational conflict, shape leadership initiatives, cultivate organizational culture, develop systems that fulfill mission statements, analyze communication effectiveness, conduct training and development, and create organizational change. Our focus at Pepperdine is to create people who will become positive change agents for every conceivable type of organization.
