About

The Event Management program from Swiss School of Higher Education provides an overview of different types of events and their specific requirements in terms of operational planning. 

This course will analyze the motivations and expectations of clients today and the evolving event environment. 

The students will study concepts and the frameworks relating to planning, decision-making and operational procedures for venue selection, logistics, budgeting, human resource planning and service providers.

At the end of the program students are required to complete an internship, which will give them practical experience and shape their theoretical knowledge in the industry.
