GENB 2301: Business Writing Evaluation / Business Writing Tutorial

Note: All BWT students must choose "GENB 2301:Business Writing Tutorial (BWT)" to schedule your appointment. Course name "BBA 1001" is now called "GENB 2301:Business Writing Tutorial (BWT)".

The C. T. Bauer College of Business has partnered with the Writing Center to create The Bauer Experience, an entry-to-major non-credit course designed to enforce a quality threshold for student writing in the college. Students are assessed by the Business Writing Evaluation as part of their entry to the major, and those who do not meet the standard of writing competency are tutored intensively in the Business Writing Tutorial. Once students referred to participate in the tutorials satisfactorily complete a business writing portfolio, they both clear the Bauer Experience and take with them a dossier that they will be able to use in their job search upon completion of their degree.

GENB 4350: Business Law & Ethics

The Writing Center supports this 600-person senior-level business course through an extensive "Assess and Address" partnership. Each student's writing is assessed early in the semester based on four writing assignments. Students whose performance deems them most in need of writing support subsequently participate in multiple one-on-one writing consultations with a course-dedicated writing consultant. Consultations take place at different stages of the writing process as students compose their final paper for the course.

Bauer MBA Writing Program

The goal is to provide individualized tutoring as needed to ensure—to students and to employers—that MBA graduates have demonstrated competence in written communication.
