Course Summary

This is an innovative course providing an exciting opportunity to investigate communication in the context of entrepreneurship and business. The programme will introduce you to the multidisciplinary dimensions of professional communication, exploring in detail how linguistic analysis can illuminate and enhance communication in businesses and a range of other workplaces. The principle of language study we have established at Nottingham combines theoretical and ideological dimensions with highly practical applications. The course explores the role of communication in business-related human affairs using a variety of approaches, ranging from discourse analysis and interactional sociolinguistics to corpus linguistics. This course aims to explore the how linguistic analysis can enhance communication in business and entrepreneurial practices. You will be introduced to multidiscipline dimensions of communication studies as well as learn the skills required to analyse and develop business strategy and communication. The project affords you the opportunity of investigating and enhancing communication within a specific commercial or work-related site or environment, as well as developing the potential of your own entrepreneurial ideas. Our postgraduate students move into an extraordinarily wide range of careers following their time in the school. Conducting postgraduate work in the School of English fosters many vital skills and may give you a head start in the job market. Studying at this level allows you to develop qualities of self-discipline and self-motivation that are essential to employment in a wide range of different fields.
