Dr. Arthur Rubens: February 2015 FGCU Author Series Honoree

Congratulations to Dr. Arthur Rubens, our 22nd honoree in the FGCU Author Series of recently published books authored or edited by FGCU faculty and staff! Dr. Rubens’ coauthored bookSustainable Development in the Developing World : A Holistic Approach to Decode the Complexity of a Multi-dimensional Topic will be featured on the Library website during the month of February and displayed on a poster on the first floor of Library West in the FGCU Authors and New Books area.

Dr. Rubens is a Professor of Management and a founding faculty member at FGCU, where he teaches in the B.S., M.B.A., Executive M.B.A., and International programs in the Lutgert College of Business. He holds a Ph.D. in health administration from the University of Pittsburgh, and has over 25 years of professional experience. Dr. Rubens’ primary teaching and research interests include business strategy, leadership, international management, economic development, entrepreneurship, ethics, and quality management. Sustainable Development in the Developing World : A Holistic Approach to Decode the Complexity of a Multi-dimensional Topic tackles the issue of sustainable development in developing and less-developed countries and “builds a bridge between the abstract world of economists and practical real-life situations . . . in both the developed and the developing world.”

Each month a recent book authored by FGCU staff or faculty is selected, presented by an accompanying poster, and featured on the Library’s website. Everyone is encouraged to view the display of our FGCU authors’ recent works. Any of the Author Series books in the General Collection are available for check out. Authors are encouraged to donate a copy of their book(s) to the Library by contacting their subject specialist.
