The Event Management online undergraduate certificate prepares students with the introductory and practical skills they need to enter the event management workforce. The curriculum incorporates the newest technologies and emerging trends in the industry. Program faculty are experts in their fields and have decades of experience applying the skills they teach in the classroom.
Graduates are prepared with skill sets that allow them to secure exciting positions with leading employers at hotels, wineries, private clubs, casinos, sporting events, meetings, trade shows, cruise lines, and restaurants; or to be self-employed as an event planner.
Students can apply all courses in the certificate toward the Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality and Event Management.
Certificates are also an excellent opportunity for students looking to ease into a degree program or for students currently working on a degree. Since each certificate program works differently in terms of time to completion, scheduling, delivery method, and financial aid, it's best to talk to an academic advisor to get all the details!
