Professional Communication

UBC Certificate Program

The ability to communicate clearly, effectively, and persuasively is a critical skill in today’s workplace—no matter what industry you are in. A 2015 survey of Canadian workplaces across industries lists communication skills and writing as the top two most sought after skills in job postings (as reported on Workopolis.com). The UBC Certificate in Professional Communication is designed to build these skills, as well as the soft skills that come with strong communication such as teamwork, critical thinking, and adaptability.

The UBC Certificate in Professional Communication provides you with a toolkit of writing skills and strategies to help you communicate more effectively, with the choice of following either a General Track or a Leadership Track.
