Students will learn to create event concepts and plan celebrations from beginning to end, understand how to negotiate and handle vendor contracts, and develop client contracts and service packages. ​​Students will earn a certification as a professional wedding planner and will have an opportunity to put the new skills to work in an optional internship.
