'Professor Chorafas evaluates modern education and its impact on business through the eyes of a pursuer of excellence. He brings together numerous arguments in favor of a simple, yet easily forgotten principle: There is no substitute for quality. He does not hesitate to go against the river, but before questioning his views you should think twice, because Professor Chorafas has at his side a database of unparalleled experience and knowledge. This is a book which should be carefully read by academicians, politicians, and aspiring students.' Professor Miltiades E. Anagnostou, National Technical University of Athens
