Klaus Sommer Paulsen Joins IDEAS Project for Developing a New Management Masters Program for Themed Entertainment
AdventureLAB News: December 15th, 2022
We’re happy to share that Klaus Sommer Paulsen has joined the recently launched project IDEAS as an industry representative and external consultant.
The aim of the IDEAS project is to design a joint master’s program to educate students towards senior and executive-level management positions in the themed entertainment, theme parks and attractions industry with a strong focus on international business management and sustainability. It is a significant moment for the industry, and we’re honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to its development.
The three universities involved in the project are Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Spain (URV, coordinator, lead beneficiary), Breda University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands (BUas) and Université Côte d’Azur (UCA) in France. Important associations such as the International Attractions and Amusement Parks Association (IAAPA) and the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) are also supporting the project.
The project began with a Kick-off Meeting at Universitat Rovira i Virgili Spain last month, where Klaus joined the team, who, among other things, discussed program objectives, teaching/training activities and competencies and learning outcomes.
