This study aimed to determine the effectiveness level of the communication skills of the selected participants who were non-native speakers of the English language, and examine its implications for their business skills. A descriptive method of research was utilized and a borrowed questionnaire with slight modifications was administered to 145 students through purposive sampling. The results of the study showed that the majority of the participants have a moderate and high level of effectiveness in terms of their communication skills with 48% and 31% respectively. However, 21% of the participant showed a low level of communication skills effectiveness. The students who have a high level of effectiveness in their communication skills are interpreted as excellent communicators and those who have a moderate level of effectiveness in communication skills are categorized as able communicators. It implies that the participants can communicate with competence and use them in their various business skills. However, students who have low levels of communication skills need to pay attention to their communication skills so that they can be much more effective.
