WSSU School of Business and Economics Launches Book on Competitiveness
New Book from WSSU School of Business and Economics
The School of Business and Economics at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) is launching a collection of essays on factors that affect success in today’s competitive environment on Tuesday, September 13, at 4 p.m. in the auditorium lobby of the R. J. Reynolds Center on campus.
Editors for the book, Modern Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century: Global Experiences, included three faculty members from Winston-Salem State University. They were Jessica Bailey, dean of the School of Business and Economics, Zagros Madjd-Sadjadi, chair of the Department of Economics and Finance, and Nikolaos Karagiannis, assistant professor of economics. Claudette Chin-Loy, assistant director of the doctoral program in business studies at Nova Southeastern University in Florida, also served as an editor.
“Our goal was to create a thought-provoking platform for developing alternatives to improve competitiveness in the twenty-first century,” said Karagiannis. “The contributions to the book expand and update the existing body of knowledge, including providing contemporary material in direct contrast with older views and thoughts. We think the collection of material offers concrete alternative policies related to many aspects of competitiveness in today’s global economy.”
The various authors of the essays link competitiveness with economic development, tertiary education, health insurance, socio-cultural and legal issues. The essays also analyze important aspects of competitiveness in the context of different areas of the world, including the Caribbean region, Greece, the Czech Republic, The Bahamas, and Vietnam. The book was published in July by Lexington Books, an imprint of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group.
