Business and Professional English
Successful global business depends on successful communication.
There is no doubt that English has been adopted and integrated as the main lingua franca for international business. Formal academic education provides academic knowledge and qualifications, but it does not always equip one with skills to communicate effectively and accurately in a professional world dominated by English.
