Program Description

Graduate Program : Event Manager

LéCOLE - The Event Thinking School

«Events management isn't a role that can be fully learned or mastered in a conventional 50m² classroom.»

Each student becomes familiar with the sites and comes face to face with the venues that are the "raw materials" of any event.

Classes are held in locations that change every week. Days or weeks are "hosted" by various event sites (Convention centers - Expo parks - Hotels - Theatres - Advertiser campuses - Stadiums - Concert halls - Public places etc...). Students and contributors will spend time in these places. The educational benefits of this mobile school are multiple:

  • Discovering new places, their strengths, their weaknesses and how they work
  • Working on practical case scenarios
  • Never turning school into a routine, providing students with continuous opportunities for discovery
  • Introduction to technical staging (stage design, sound, light and video)
  • Anchoring this educational program within a tangible professional reality that will one day make up the everyday lives of the future events management professionals

These sites are chosen for their events potential. Students and speakers can check the schedule on the App - especially developed for LéCOLE - daily updated. They can find on it the places for everyday, with the address, a map if needed, and all the useful information. If certain sites or events require more than a Navigo pass to reach them, a transfer will be organized by LéCOLE.

The mobile school principle is essential. It provides a particularly practical approach to Event Thinking.
