Tourism, Conventions & Event Management Curriculum

What you'll learn

The B.S. in Tourism, Conventions, and Event Management covers all angles of event management, hospitality, and tourism.

You'll explore the mechanics of tourism and event planning, from concept to execution, and you'll better understand the areas of food and beverage operations, lodging, and global tourism.

Through a partnership with the Kelley School of Business, you'll also earn a certificate covering the foundations of business knowledge, preparing you for a wide range of career options.

Students also can supplement the B.S. degree with one or more TCEM certificates.
