MY Access®! Professional Edition
MY Access! Professional Edition is designed specifically to guide business school students through the process of learning to write purposefully, powerfully, and persuasively.
Writing well can make the difference between a polite nod and an enthusiastic project approval. MY Access! Professional Edition lessons and writing activities offer “MBA specific” prompts to help you bring your written business communication up to the executive level.
Why is professional writing so important?
Writing is a skill required universally across industries. From resumes, technical reports, and sales proposals, to e-mails, presentations, and memos, writing plays a crucial role in everyday communication and documentation. And surveys show that employers require strong writing when evaluating a candidate for a job or promotion. Employers recognize that writing is linked closely to thinking—and they view it as an indicator of your ability.
First, you strengthen your writing skills…
When developing your writing skills, you’ll focus on the process of writing itself: planning, organizing, drafting, revising, and editing. You’ll learn to clearly form ideas, link them together in meaningful ways, and express them concisely, all while obeying the “rules” or conventions of writing.
…then, you write to succeed.
Understanding the writing process quickly becomes a means to reaching higher goals. As your writing continues to improve, whether writing sales proposals, business plans, or marketing materials, you’ll find it easier to organize, clarify, and communicate your message—and inspire action.
