"The Event Certificate addition to the Hospitality Management degree is an elevated opportunity that allows students to diversify their knowledge and passion for the hospitality and events industry. The event courses offered at UW-Stout allows for a hands-on experience that shows students how to plan mock-events with a tailored set of tools to help them learn and grow.
The courses target real-world experience, whether students decide to focus their skills on the supplier or planner side of the industry. Whether students desire to plan large or small meetings and events, corporate or social gatherings, or have a passion to work for a non-profit organization or for-profit venue, students will hone in on their skills and work on their areas of opportunities through the courses offered.
With the success of the polytechnic courses offered and the volunteer involvement opportunities on campus, there’s no wonder the Hospitality Management program has a 97% employment rating."
