We have chosen to write this article at a record time when in most african countries especially in cote d'ivoire, we suddenly are witnessing an unprecedented desire for higher levels of education and attainment of higher degrees among the old and the young.
We have chosen to write this book at a time when there is an increase emergence of media pluralism all across Africa bombarding our nation, our future corporate executives and professionals with the erroneous and disempowering notion that one nation can only succeed when it happens to be among the few privileged in the world's society. and that if the nation happens to be successful, then it is by chance or by virtue of whom you know in the world.
Again, we have chosen to write this book at a time when in spite of the unprecedented increase in the number of his tertiary graduate students all over the world, there continues to be a wide gap between academia and industry. cote d'ivoire is still lagging behind the rest of the world in information and communication technology, and in economies and accouting.
we have witnessed the sad impact the media have had on our future leaders in their thinking patterns and their way of self-packaging in recent times.
however, if the truth be told, success in any field can happen to anybody and that success is not something that rondomly happens to you; it is something you make happen for you.

we are listing to you with all your comment.
