Ever wanted to learn how the world’s major music festivals are managed? Wanting to organise your own community event or fair? Perhaps you’d like to improve your skills in holding corporate functions, or gain an understanding of how large sporting events are coordinated?
Whether you are a graduate or young professional trying to break into the events industry, or an experienced event manager wanting to update your skill-set, next month you will have the opportunity to add value to your career with a specialised Executive Certificate in Event Management.
Taught by the internationally renowned Australian Centre for Event Management (ACEM) based at the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS), the Executive Certificate is regarded as the most prestigious short-course in event management amongst prospective employers and industry leaders in government, corporate and not-for-profit organisations.
“The event industry in Australia is growing rapidly and increasingly demands professional staff with recognised skills and qualifications, whom also have a knowledge of creative, operational, production, legal and safety issues,” said Robert Harris, ACEM Director.
With the first intake of students commencing in Sydney 6th July – 9th July, the Executive Certificate in Event Management is taught over distinct two units, Event Management and Marketing; and Event Operations, providing a total of six days. The course will be delivered by employing a mix of lectures, class exercises and case studies from Australia’s most experienced event industry experts.
“The Executive Certificate offers students and event professionals a firm basis in theory and case studies, matched with practical insights from successful industry professionals. All our students graduate with globally recognised credentials and have an invaluable networking experience with the leaders of the industry, their fellow students and future colleagues,” said Rob.
“While the Executive Certificate does provide an introduction to the industry for graduates or young professionals, advanced event managers will also benefit from training with ACEM to keep abreast of industry trends and innovations.”
With four weeks to go, many students in Sydney and regional NSW are signing up for the courses as part of a desire to do something they are passionate about, and potentially even open their own business one day.
According to event coordinator and former ACEM student Yasmin Uzunlar, the specialised short courses gave her a unique advantage in a tough job market, allowing her to explore a career in a range of different sectors.
“The Australian Centre for Event Management not only gave me internationally recognised training and credentials, but also improved my confidence and strategic thinking in a wide range of industries, including sporting events, community activities, major corporate events and public festivals. I loved hearing practical stories from people with an incredible amount of industry experience,” she said.
“For people looking to study or develop their career, these short courses are a fantastic opportunity to network with the ‘who’s who’ of the industry, and get personal advice in an intimate and relaxed environment.”
