North Carolina in the Global Economy: The Workforce Development Challenge (2013-2014)

Using a global value chain approach, this team developed a comprehensive website on North Carolina's emerging workforce challenge, using information drawn from both secondary sources and direct contact with companies located in the state's most significant industries, and draw implications for education and economic competitiveness in the state.

This year, students looked at the seven industries on the North Carolina in the Global Economy website and assisted in updating the content of the website.
