This is the only award-winning, comprehensive events planning program that is designed to increase your marketable skills in your events career, and to prepare you for future success in the event planning business. The full program of courses may be completed in 6-8 months, but you have up to two years to finish the program. Many of our students complete the program in a year.
The program has won the prestigious Gold Pinnacle award from the International Festivals and Events Association for 6 out of the past 8 years as the Best Event Leadership Certificate program in the world.
Our faculty consists of industry experts with decades of experience in the field, giving our students the opportunity to learn practical applications form the best in the business.
Each month you are able to choose which classes you will register for, allowing for flexibility, as many of our students have busy schedules. With classes conveniently held on Saturdays on the Main Temple University campus, many of our students can still hold full-time jobs while pursuing this certificate. You’re also exposed to events through the externship portion of the program, and by the end will complete an executive portfolio which will highlight the skills you have learned in the classroom.
