Tourism, Conventions, and Event Management

A major in event tourism with career potential

The Tourism, Conventions, and Event Management degree allows detail-oriented individuals to call the shots in a fast-paced work environment that changes daily.

You’ll study event management in and out of the classroom, run your own event, and get hands-on experience through extracurricular programs and internships at places like the Indianapolis Children’s Museum, the JW Marriott, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the 500 Festival.

These rich resources in the Indianapolis tourism, event, and hospitality industry—along with dedicated professors who have worked in the field—will give you the education and professional contacts you need to land a job managing high-profile events, sports franchises, museums, and other attractions after you graduate.
