About This Specialization

The Effective Communication Specialization takes you on a journey of self realization.

You'll learn to write well-organized, clear business documents that showcase your ideas; to design elegant presentation slides, reports, documents, and other visual products; and to present and speak with confidence and power. In the final Capstone Project, you will develop a portfolio of work—including a memo, a slide deck, and a presentation—to showcase your communication skills and represent your personal brand.
