Citation Styles for Business

There is no "official" citation style for business sources.  The three most commonly used citations styles are APA (American Psychological Association,  MLA (Modern Language Association), and CMS (The Chicago Manual of Style).  

APA and MLA are the two citations styles used at West Georgia Technical College.  Check your syllabus to determine which citation style should be used for your assignment.
