Business English

For Professionals

Deep Coaching for Big Goals

Professionals study at OISE because they understand a simple fact: without a confident command of English, their careers are limited. They want to speak in meetings but do not know the right words. They waste too much time writing short work emails in English. They dream of working abroad. And if they own a business and want to take it international, they need the English skills to tell the world who they are and what they do.

OISE transforms these ambitious learners into confident professionals who participate in their industries in English on a global level. Students learn not only English proficiency but also assertiveness, critical thinking, and international communication. With these skills, alumni move to the next stage of their careers ready to become leaders in their fields.

Personal Tutors

OISE tutors are like personal trainers. They hold students to the high standards that their careers demand and challenge them to communicate their ideas effectively, using the English they have. As a result, students discover their power to influence people on an international scale. Each participant is assigned a team of tutors who each specialize in a different aspect of the curriculum. The learner is exposed to a variety of pedagogic approaches as well as different personalities, voices, intonation, and accents: a situation that reflects the diversity of expression in the wider world.
