We have all now seen the AUM Opera stock-image adds with fake musicians on them, as well as the concert video advertising AUM Opera (sounds like a new browser… maybe an idea for a graduation project? This way AUM can also control our Google traffic and monitor what we search for online). Great music, though likewise neither recorded, nor shot at AUM, but simply purchased online for the sake of a phony marketing campaign. Good thing now AUM marketing team were asked to add “house” to the announcement, so it reads “AUM Opera House”. Great! Now we get it, you illiterate people, you! You will have an empty opera house. Here is to Their Excellencies the local music stars coming to stage shows at your place, and you collecting ticket fees so that peasants from that part of Kuwait don’t have to go all the way up to Kuwait City to listen to some amateurs play out of tune. You will need to pick your clan AUM, as the Kuwait music scene is one big chessboard. Maybe SIK Productions could come show you how it is done… Or the Polish music school mafia?
And while we are at it, does anyone remember the AUM Nanotechnology Center? Yep, that is right. The image they used for that add was a stock one too – you can Google it. Phony image for a phony nanotech center. Did it happen? Do we have a nanotech center at AUM? It did not happen and we do not have it. Why? Because for a real nanotech center you need money, staff, interested management and an academically strong environment.
Currently at AUM, we are struggling to even get a lab. We have been asking for mechanical engineering labs for over two years now and it is always in the pipelines. Always not approved. Because the Lady D at the top does not exactly care for genuine learning, or academic excellence.
In fact, things are exactly as Forbes Middle East put them (http://www.forbesmiddleeast.com/en/from-banker-to-refugee-to-multi-million-dollar-businessman/). AUM management are business people. They do not care for education, or else the article would have said “From Banker to a Leader in Education Management”. At this point though, it is more “From Banker to Refugee, to Mythomaniac”. And better still, “From Banker, to Mythomaniac, to Megalomaniac”.
AUM has the money, you might think. It does indeed. At AUM News Weekly we laid our hands on some financial documents. Yes, you read that right! We are analyzing them and will be posting some numbers for you very soon. Hey You was trying to tell us in one of his comments that we have nothing and that he dares us publish an AUM contract, and the Agreement. Well, now they are out, Hey You. So, watch out for the next documents that will become public and tremble for your job because some of them came to us through you, albeit indirectly.
