This research has utilized both qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate the challenges that undergraduate students at Nazareth Art and Science College. Two hundred Nazareth Art and Science College students participated in this survey. Primary data was gathered by survey questionnaires administered to a random sample of 200 students and classroom observation. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the survey data. The findings of this study reveal that various hurdles were encountered by the students in their business writing. Challenges such as limited vocabulary, lack of grammar knowledge, lack of practice and traditional teaching method all contribute to the difficulties of students’ business writing. Classroom observation data also reveals that students have trouble with vocabulary, grammar, and practice and teaching method. It is suggested that the current study's scope be broadened to include students from a variety of universities in order to get to the heart of the difficulties associated with business writing. It is anticipated that the current research would persuade university professors to give business writing the same level of consideration as other pedagogical focuses.
