Academic and Business Writing

About Course

Business and academic writing, there are a few points in common. Both styles need well-developed ideas that are communicated precisely and clearly. The tone is serious in both, whether reporting on research or making recommendations for change. Lastly, proper grammar and punctuation are very important in both forms of communication.


  • Academic writing is strictly formal and it uses the third person. Business writing, on the other hand, is far less formal and it can take advantage of any point of view necessary.
  • Academic writing is placing the emphasis on sheer facts as a rule of thumb. Business writing, on the other hand, is more about opinions.
  • Long sentences are fairly usable in academic writing. Business writing doesn’t tolerate them as well.
