Humber’s Event Management graduate certificate program includes comprehensive and hands on training combined with industry involvement and the ability to apply what you have learned through an internship. They provide you with essential skills such as venue selection, logistic and time planning, staging, selection of food and beverage, budgeting, staffing, post- event evaluation, and professional expectations. You will learn to design, develop, co-ordinate and manage a broad range of events such as corporate meeting planning; film, documentary and music festivals; not-for-profit experiential events and galas; brand experience; consumer events; and trade shows.

Additionally, you will gain transferable, practical knowledge and skills in management practices such as planning, design, marketing, human resource and volunteer management, sponsorship, catering management, budgeting, risk management, and event evaluation – for in-person or online/virtual events. Faculty are chosen for their expertise and experience in the event management field and many continue to work in the industry.

Gain hands-on experience in the industry with a work placement that will give you the opportunity to apply in a real business what you have learned in the classroom. Students initiate the placement with the aid of faculty, targeting companies in the Greater Toronto Area. A 160-hour (minimum) work placement may be completed full time in the third semester.
