The BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism at Wake Forest University welcomes graduate students to the a new semester! Whether returning from vacation, starting a new semester, or coming to campus as a new student, we hope you are looking forward to an exciting and dynamic new year.
Wake Forest’s BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism was founded in 2008 through a generous grant from BB&T, with a goal of broadening the understanding of capitalism and its issues. Exploring issues relevant to business and the functioning of free markets is the focus of our effort within the Schools of Business -- through involvement of faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students at Wake Forest, courses that are taught, guest speakers and events, providing timely news about capitalism, and supporting interesting research by our faculty.
Please visit and explore our website, www.capitalism.wfu.edu, to learn more about the Center, connect with current events in markets and politics, and take advantage of the resources and events that are offered. We will regularly post the week’s upcoming Center-supported events to this newsletter, but please check the calendars in the weeks and months ahead to plan and schedule for the many exciting speakers, panels, forums, and more that we will offer. We have included several of our September events in this newsletter.
Also please contact us with ideas or ways in which we can help you or your club. We look forward to working with you on this teaching and learning journey to excellence!
