Teaching Business Communication in Nicaragua
Sapp, David Alan
Business Communication Quarterly, v70 n2 p199-203 2007
Global partnerships between educational institutions are one mechanism for building a capacity to educate students and prepare them for the global economy. In this article, the author describes a seminar on business communication he taught to the faculty members of Universidad Centroamerica de Managua (UCA) in Managua, Nicaragua. The purpose of the seminar was to introduce the study of business writing as applied to global communication and contemporary situations in multinational corporations. The author describes how this partnership between his university and UCA allows students and faculty to be exposed to the structures of globalization that frame Nicaragua's historical experience and its relationship with the United States.
