Bachelor of Science

Event Management

Are you always up for a challenge? Are you creative and detail-oriented?  Event management goes far beyond just throwing a great party…and it may be the perfect career for you.

With a degree in event management, you could stage music festivals or arrange charitable fundraising dinners. You could plan weddings for an oceanfront hotel, or plan high-publicity sporting events. You could work for a major hotel or corporation, or start your own company—whatever you do, it’s clear that the door will be open to many exciting possibilities. 

In class, you’ll learn about the food and resort industries and how to stage events of every size. You’ll take part in the innovative “Lynn Learning-in-Action” program, where you’ll actually plan and execute several events on campus. And for even more hands-on learning, you can get involved with a professional golf tournament or work with local event planning company.

No matter what, you’ll have at least two internships before you graduate with your new business degree. And although that degree will be very marketable already, having a major in event management will broaden your job opportunities even more.
