BCOR 299: Business Communication (Walker)

This guide is designed to help students in Brian Walker's section of BCOR 299 find resources for their class assignments.

Where do I start?

For this assignment, you've been asked to develop a short presentation on a particular business topic. Once your instructor assigns those topics, your first step should be to learn all you can about it. 
That may mean researching a company, a specific person, or a series of events. 

Check out the resources listed below to find a wide variety of business-related publications covering all the latest news and events. 

If you have trouble finding information, please let us know!
