BIOGRAPHY

My first college degree was a Cand. Oecon. (or Candidatus Oeconomices) degree from the University of Iceland in 1979. There are no equivalent degrees awarded by American Universities. This degree is considered equivalent to a Master's degree, albeit it combines the Master's level work with undergraduate work.
I received my Ph.D. in Economics from The Pennsylvania State University in 1986, where I also worked as an economics instructor through the Spring of 1987. My areas of specialization for my Ph.D. were Econometrics, Labor Economics, and Monetary Economics.
My first tenure-track position was as an Assistant Professor of Economics at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (1987-1992), but I also taught for a year as a visiting professor at my alma mater, the University of Iceland. I have been a faculty member at FSU since 1992, so I have now been here for over a quarter of a century.
As for my "real-world" experience, before finishing my Cand. Oecon Degree from the University of Iceland and heading to Penn State for my doctorate, I had worked in a variety of different jobs: in sales, in farm equipment repair, on fishing boats as a deckhand and cook, as a contractor and as an editor.

My academic work has appeared in a number of different academic journals, including the International Journal of Social Economics, the Atlantic Economic Journal, the American Journal of Economics and Sociology, the Eastern Economic Journal, International Advances in Economic Research, the Journal of Private Enterprise, the Journal of Economics, the Review of Social Economy, Humanomics, the Southern Economic Journal, the Journal of Cultural Science and the International Journal of English Linguistics. I have also published monograms as well as papers in various academic proceedings and as chapters in books. My research has been eclectic and ranged across different fields: for example, monetary theory, social economics, choice theory, behavioral economics, the history of economic thought and the economics of language.

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Gavin Jiayun Wu is an Associate Professor of Marketing in the Department of Graduate and Professional Studies in Business, Broadwell College of Business and Economics (AACSB accredited) at Fayetteville State University, part of the University of North Carolina System. Dr. Wu received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in the United States in December 2011. After obtaining his master's degree and before pursuing his Ph.D., Dr. Wu had several years' experience as an editor and foreign copyrights manager for a state-owned press in Beijing, China.


Dr. Wu takes great pleasure in eliciting students' acquisition and understanding of subject matter and in fostering their critical skills (divergent thinking, logical reasoning and comparative reasoning). He has enhanced his teaching skills both in the traditional classroom setting and in the online environment through teaching various marketing or business-related courses at both undergraduate and MBA level (e.g., Modern Marketing, Marketing Management, Buyer Behavior, Marketing/Business Research, Professional Selling, Environment of Business). Dr. Wu's familiarity with both Western and Asian cultures, including fluency in both English and Chinese and a working knowledge of Japanese, enables him to work effectively with faculty, staff, and students from diverse ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Along with the engineering foundation he acquired during his bachelor's and master's studies, Dr. Wu has gained a comprehensive understanding of marketing and management theories and applications through his doctoral studies, teaching, and ongoing research. Dr. Wu's more than 40 published peer-reviewed articles and proceedings by 2018 (e.g., European Journal of Marketing, Qualitative Market Research: An International Journal, Journal of Marketing Channels, and Journal of Research for Consumers), as well as many ongoing projects attest not only to his research capability, but also his commitment to quality research.
