Event Planning and Management Certificate

Event Planning and Management Certificate Student works before an event

The Event Planning and Management Certificate is designed for current SIU students and adult learners who wish to have additional ​event-related skills. Students can enter the event industry generally from multiple angles, but these courses ensure they have more than just a foundational knowledge because we focus on marketing and sponsorships, risk management, entertainment production, and virtual events more specifically in the individual courses.

Event Planning and Management

The Undergraduate Certificate in Event Planning and Management is meant to enhance the marketability of students who wish to pursue careers in meeting and special event planning and management. Enrollment in Hospitality, Tourism and Event Management is not required to complete the certificate. While the certificate itself does not lead to a degree, courses can be counted as approved electives toward the Hospitality, Tourism and Event Management degree. Students not wishing to pursue a baccalaureate must complete the unclassified undergraduate application.
