ECSU students attend UNC conference
A group of Elizabeth City State University students, faculty, and administrators participated in the First Social Business Conference organized by the University of North Carolina General Administration. The conference was held at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, and it was organized particularly to educate the UNC students and faculty about the theme of the concept of “social business.” In 2006, Muhammad Yunus, a Bangladesh banker and economist, received the Noble Peace Prize for developing and applying the concept we now know as social business.
The theme of social business is that capitalism and poverty or business and poverty should not be antithetical. The plights of the billions of people in poverty, many of whom live on less than $2 dollars, can be radically changed with a new concept of social business — a concept that is based on the belief that business skills and honesty are not the monopoly of the rich and the educated.
ECSU prepared two proposals for presentation. One proposal was entitled “From welfare to workforce: Micro financing for small business growth in Northeast North Carolina.” It was developed by Dr. Debjani Kanjilal and Dr. Emily Y. Jin of the ECSU Walter R. Davis School of Business and Economics, and Dr. Shahid M. Shahidullah of the ECSU School of Arts and Humanities. The other proposal was titled “Wireless broad-band initiative for rural Northeastern North Carolina: Improving quality of life.” It was developed by Anupam Nath of the ECSU Department of Business Administration.
