Centennial College’s Event Management (Online) program will cover a wide overview of the event industry. Students will 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, students examine management practices, including how events are designed, funded, staffed, and promoted. Learners can expect exposure to the planning and development of sustainability, creativity, sales and marketing, and budgeting along with an understanding of volunteer and team building.

Instructors will guide and direct students to real-world learning opportunities, which will require reflection on how the experiences connect to course content. During these experiences, students participate in work-integrated learning assignments, projects, or experiential learning opportunities.

Students graduate with an It’s Your Shift certification, an innovative training and awareness program to prevent sexual harassment and violence.

What You’ll Learn

  • Create, plan, and design an event to meet organizational and/or client needs.
  • Coordinate event site logistics, and staging, to achieve the event objectives.
  • Plan, promote, and produce marketing plans and communications for events that meet organizational and/or client objectives.
