We are thrilled to announce the successful completion of the highly sought-after Executive Certificate in Business & Public Event Management Programme, a collaborative effort between Taylor's University, School of Hospitality, Tourism and Events and Event Training Australia. The programme included a site visit and talk, hosted at the prestigious Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), and concluded with great success, attracting both local and international participants.
During the 3 days programme, participants embarked on a transformative journey, delving into the realms of event management. Through a comprehensive curriculum and engaging learning experiences, cohorts gained essential skills and knowledge from the Trainer Dr. Rob Harris together with the industry expert Ms. Dee Dee Quah, CMP, Founder & Director of Medical Conference Partners and K Wealthlab, preparing them for a successful career in the events industry.
In conjunction with the programme, the group of cohorts had the unique opportunity to visit the facility at Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) with Ms. Winnee Lim, General Manager of Business Development and our Bachelor of International Events Management student Cedric Chee Guo Jun who is currently an intern at MITEC. The participants gained valuable insights into real-world event management operations and further enriching their learning experience.
"We are immensely proud of the collaboration between Taylor's University and Event Training Australia, which resulted in the successful delivery of the Executive Certificate Programme," said Dr. Lisa Tung, the Programme Director at Taylor's School of Hospitality, Tourism & Events. "We extend our gratitude to MITEC for graciously hosting us and providing our cohorts with a firsthand glimpse into the world of event management."
The programme's diverse cohort of local and international participants contributed to a vibrant and dynamic learning environment, fostering cultural exchange and networking opportunities. Graduates of the Executive Certificate in Business & Public Event Management are now well-equipped to lead and excel in the ever-evolving events industry.
