The purpose of this paper is to feature a theoretical discussion of competitiveness as an entry point for further empirical studies within the School of Business at the Universidad del Norte. The concept of competitiveness has been part of the debate among several "think tanks" at the international level. After the analysis of the theoretical foundations of competitiveness, the paper highlights some concepts to support those theories. In the scope of Colombia, the study explores the country's efforts addressed towards the application of competitiveness´ concepts. At the end of the paper a model is proposed as a basis for further studies. Moreover, a series of questions and recommendations are made considering the region as unit of analysis, where competitiveness should be studied as a theoretical structure.
