Our intensive Special Events Operations Management Program is intended to provide essential skills for those actively pursuing employment in special events operations management as well as to upgrade the skill sets of busy professionals working in the industry. The courses required for this special events operations program expose you to both core George Brown College curriculum and industry-relevant content.
Once you have completed all the requirements of this program, you can request to receive a certificate. Program graduates may only need to complete a handful of extra courses to obtain another operations management certificate since this program shares a number of its course requirements with Food and Beverage, Hotel, Kitchen and Tourism.
