Event Management Minor

WHY MINOR IN EVENT MANAGEMENT?

Event Management continues to gain momentum as a valuable and specialized skill set for organizations of all kinds. Special events are important strategies organizations use to cultivate and maintain relationships with their clients, targeted audiences and employees. In fact, special events are an industry in their own right with applications from fundraisers to corporate retreats to private parties and everything in between.
