Hospitality Management Events Management Concentration

  • Program Overview

    The Endicott events management concentration explores the dynamics of planning events - whether they're private, family gatherings or large corporate-sponsored affairs that require a workforce to operate. As an aspiring event professional, you will learn to plan, organize, and manage events of all sizes and types. You will develop the knowledge and skills to ensure their success. Qualified event planners are in demand by a broad scope of organizations and corporations that require management specialization to oversee every facet of the event in a proactive and competent manner.

    In the events management concentration, we use a dual approach linking strong, hands-on learning with solid managerial foundations taught in a variety of courses such as: Service Management, Events Risk Management, and Management of Special Events to maximize your career opportunities.
