An April fool? or an opportunity?

Wittenborg University considers launching a Master degree programme in 'Advanced International Austerity Project Instigation' (AM-IAPI)

Little Cartoon by Timothy BirdsallWith austerity* being in the minds of many Europeans, both individuals and companies are seeing the fast approaching austerity measures announced by many governments as considerable projects that require considerably masterful instigation.The Master Advanced International Austerity Project Instigation (AM-IAPI) can prepare students for the nightmare scenarios of the future.

The Netherlands, for instance, currently has a number of these austerity project teams in action, both at a local level, such as in Apeldoorn, where a new team is just about to be ignited, and at a national level where the austerity project team has been debating for weeks in the Cats House, and might soon be resigned to the Dog House. A great issue being discussed is whether the current qualifications of key players in the austerity game are at all adequate, and there is an ever rising clamor for more professionalization and knowledgeableability.

Research: Having spoken to many stakeholders in the street, as well as listened to the radio and watched the TV in angst, Wittenborg has decided that it should act, and start preparing the austerity project managers of the future, by enlightening the next generation, - “Generation A”-, about the mistakes made by Generation X and how to live happily with it : - )
