Bachelor of Science

Create an experience

Event planning is more than just throwing a great party, when you enroll in the event management program at Lynn University, you’ll discover how to manage, operate and control an event, and you’ll become familiar with the contracts and legalities that they entail. 

Here, all of your professors will be experts in their fields, so class discussions will feature entertaining and educational stories from their experiences. Plus, event management students are exposed to an internship, so you can gain personal experience and network at the same time.

What you’ll learn in the event management degree program

  • Managing, operating and controlling an event
  • Contracts and legalities 
  • Food and resort industries

“I can’t see myself anywhere else. I looked at other schools, but Lynn stood out to me because you get that one-on-one connection with your professors. Lynn opened the door for me by connecting me with internships, which jumpstarted my career in event planning.”
