Course Description

Are you an MBA who wants to gain an edge over your peers and job market competitors?

Communication skills are in high demand, yet short supply among newly minted MBAs. According to Bloomberg Business, it is a "Job skill that companies want but can't get" (Bloomberg Business - 2015 Job Skills Report).

Learning how to communicate in an American business environment will give you a competitive advantage so that you can gain a solid return on your MBA investment.

The American Accent Training for MBAs course is designed specifically for MBAs who are non-native speakers of American English.

In this course you will learn to:

  • Pronounce over 100 commonly used American business terms clearly & correctly
  • Speak with a pace that's easy for an American audience to understand
  • Speak in a manner that Americans find professional & engaging

Your career demands that you communicate in a way that Americans respect and understand.

The lessons in American Accent Training for MBA Grads program are designed to help you achieve this.

The vocabulary featured in this course is selected from my list of high frequency accent related mistakes made by international professionals I've worked with in my accent reduction coaching program.

The business dialogs are taken from real life situations that international professionals encounter every day.

Video Case Studies featuring MBA leaders, including Harvard University's Michael Porter, will show you exactly how American business professionals speak.

I guarantee that my course will teach you the secrets for speaking American business English in a manner that is very clear, professional and engaging.
