Every event has the scope to become gigantic in the present times. With the rising number of people hosting events and the following need of skilled professionals to organise and successfully execute the same, Event Management is just the right industry to jump into if you believe that you have in your possession, the passion for making a name for yourself over there.
The domain of event management is very broad. It covers many genres and types of jobs and functions. The purpose of this course is to ingrain the correct blend of dynamism and hard work in the students. At Institute of Marketing Communications India, professionals from the industry come together with academicians to create an environment and a curriculum that fits the current market parameters.
Introduction to the Course
The unhesitating industry stalwarts contemplate a possibly substantial growth trajectory in the near future of the event management industry. With managed events, digital events, road shows, theme parties, product launches, and many other such opportunities to invite business, the industry has transformed and has become more diverse.
Management, planning, budgeting, and coordination are a few of the many possibilities at work positions that you'll find in this industry. As for the required skill set, the work description demands enthusiasm, patience, the presence of mind, the capability to keep your cool irrespective of the circumstances, a go-getter attitude, out-of-the-box thinking, artistry, adaptability, and a grip on decisions, to name a few.
The Event Management course at IMCI is a careful concoction of theoretical information and practical experience on industry-related domains. Each module of this course aims at leaving the students with a microscopic understanding of how the industry functions and how its practices have evolved over time.
In the deliberately organised curriculum of IMCI, all the modules are designed with just one purpose: to encapsulate all that is important in the least amount of time ensuring the maximum possible level of understanding.
Our module construction approach is crucial as it allows the students a correct idea of the contents of the course and the stress that they need to put on each one of them.
Module 1: Events and Management- Introduction
Module 2: Event Manager- roles and responsibilities
Module 3: Project Management
Module 4: Types of events
Module 5: People Skills- Working with client
Module 6: Event Planning Process
Module 7: Event glamorising process: dress codes and invites
Module 8: Seating arrangements and transportation and parking arrangements
Module 9: Crisis management: event exit strategies and emergency protocols
Module 10: Conducting events: before, during and after
Almost each of these modules requires further investigation into their several layers. For instance, types of events(Module 4) can have many(possible) constituents.
- Launch Events
- Fashion shows
- Bar Mitzvah
- Religious events
- Sports events
- Political events
- Photo shoots
The point behind modulation of the course is to ensure that topics with a broad range of sub-topics are dealt with in a proper manner. We expect this approach to make the process of education less messy and more concentrated.
For any candidate to get entry into this diploma course, a degree proof of graduation or any degree greater than that is required. Graduation in any stream either directly connected to Event Management or any of its neighbourhood streams will be accepted.
