(Rotterdam) – Next Wednesday, March 23rd 2011, the School Council of the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) will discuss the proposed termination of the master program Economics & ICT. Dean Philip Hans Franses claims not enough teachers are available to provide high quality education. Although dean Franses states he has done his best to recruit new teachers, other confidential and internal sources state no effort has been done whatsoever. These and other (inconvenient) truths will be brought to next Wednesday.

Student council member is vigorous to attack the dean’s plans by using strong arguments and hard evidence he gained from various internal and external sources. The council member is refusing to give out any details upfront, to make it impossible for the dean to anticipate next week’s discussion. He can though confirm that some of the revelations can come as a shock to both faculty and students. Therefore he advices the community to attend the meeting and show the dean that the community is against any hasty decisions, also referred to as ‘microwave legislation’.

If you would like to witness next week’s meeting, please do not hesitate to join!
