Using Citations in Business

Citations enhance the credibility of your argument and simplify the reader's ability to locate the source of your information. When selecting a citation style:

  1. Ask your professor: If your professor specifies a particular citation format, you should of course use that one.
  2. If your professor does not specify a particular style, use APA. It is the most commonly used style in business writing.
  3. If you're told to use footnotes or endnotes, use Chicago/ Turabian.
