Dr Ejike Udeogu is a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of East London’s School of Business and Law, where he also currently serves as the BSc (Hons) Economics programme director. He has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and economics, a postgraduate degree in financial management and a doctoral degree in economics. Before turning to academia, he worked as a statistical analyst for over five years in the public sector. His research focuses on a wide range of economic issues including the economics of imperialism and capitalism, financialisation, capital accumulation and economic development. Ejike is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and also a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute.
After a number of publications in journals such as African Political Economy, Ejike published his first book with Cambridge Scholars in 2018, entitled Financialisation, Capital Accumulation and Economic Development in Nigeria: A Critical Perspective.
Criticising the approaches of previous scholars and drawing on Africanist writers and post-Marxists such as Giovanni Arrighi, the book has been described by Uzochukwu Amakom, Senior Research Fellow at the University of Nigeria, as a must-read for “anyone who intends to understand the issues facing Nigeria and the way everything went wrong for a country once regarded as the giant of Africa.”
Now that his book is published, Ejike reflects on his experiences of working with Cambridge Scholars:
“My experience publishing with Cambridge Scholars has been wonderful. The service and assistance provided has been excellent. The process, starting with the initial contract signing to finalising the manuscript for printing, has been seamless and straightforward. I found, in particular, the support from the editors, the proof-readers and the cover designers very professional and excellent. They all provided timely and helpful advice that contributed immensely to the completion of my book and preparation for its launch. In sum, I am really pleased with the knowledge and expertise of Cambridge Scholars' staff. For a first time writer, they made publishing a book, which initially felt even more daunting than writing one, a really pleasant experience for me. I will definitely be recommending Cambridge Scholars to my colleagues and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.”
