This compact phrase book of key business terminology is an invaluable resource for students who want to communicate their ideas, arguments and analyses with greater clarity and precision.

Divided into thirty bite-size sections, users can quickly and easily find the topic they need when preparing and writing essays, reports and case studies. Each section contains three parts: words in action, taken from real academic writing; information to help you readers use these words correctly; and ‘nearly but not quite right’ examples from real students’ work.

This is an essential companion for students studying both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business and management, and is suitable for use at any stage of their studies. It is also ideal for those studying related disciplines, including business management, administration, HR, finance, systems analysis, project management, business law and corporate governance.
