|Description:||Throughout the world, humans congregate, gather and collaborate to learn, celebrate and meet. This program will cover a wide overview of the event industry. You’ll participate in defining, understanding and applying the elements involved in planning and staging corporate, social/life cycle, festivals and conferences, and the types of organizations that produce and present them.
By connecting with professors and fellow peers and through the use of independent research, group work, discussions, and experiential work-integrated learning, you’ll examine management practices, including how events are designed, funded, staffed and promoted. You can expect exposure to the planning and development of sustainability, creativity, sales and marketing, and budgeting along with the understanding of volunteer and team building.
Instructors will guide and direct you to real-world learning opportunities, which will require you to reflect on how the experiences connect to course content. During these experiences, you’ll participate in work-integrated learning assignments, projects or experiential learning opportunities.
You’ll graduate with an It’s Your Shift certification, an innovative training and awareness program to prevent sexual harassment and violence.
