  Management Presentations --- This course stresses the concepts and skills needed to give effective oral presentations in professional settings. The course is guided by a theoretical framework that emphasizes strategic communication choices, expansion of communication styles, and adaptation to others within communication contexts. This course requires students to give professional business presentations in each of the four quadrants of management communication. In the course of doing these presentations, students develop outlines, create speaking notes, adapt content, and design supplementary materials. Students also practice questions management and impromptu speaking. By the end of the course, students will be able to design, develop, and deliver management presentations that employ a variety of audience-centered strategies.
