Re: a strictly business english course in a company
Business English is an area where coursebooks tend to be even more bland than normal, possibly because ESL teaching tends to attract people whose interests lie elsewhere. If they want things like business terminology, it might be better to use materials designed for teaching business rather than the ESL business courses. They're advanced, so why not have a look at undergraduate business books?

The hardest is a short specialist course, which often requires some advanced improvisational footwork.
