IMEP was founded in 1997 as a University Studies Centre attached to Elche Miguel Hernández University, considered one of the most important public universities in Spain.
During its evolution of more than 20 years, IMEP has become a reference centre at a national level, since it is the first one to offer official university qualifications in Event Organisation, Protocol and Institutional Relations.
Throughout its history, IMEP has advocated a high-quality training model, academically rigorous and adapted to the new market needs. This philosophy has allowed our centre to receive over 1,000 students, who achieved a first-class qualification to work as professionals specialised in the areas of Event Organisation, Protocol and Institutional Relations.
All through these years of operation, IMEP has also endeavoured to strengthen its values as a university centre with a Mediterranean ambience. This Mediterranean identity is present both in its philosophy (open and multidisciplinary) and in its location in Alicante, one of the regions with the greatest development in such a strategic sector as is Tourism, especially linked to Event Organisation, Protocol and Institutional Relations.
All the degrees offered by IMEP combine lecture sessions focused on the theoretical foundations with practical applied information where reflection and debate group dynamics, case studies and real problem solving are used.
Practical Training Applied to the Professional Sphere
One of the pillars of IMEP’s formative philosophy is its proximity to professional and business reality in the Event Organisation, Protocol and Institutional Relations sector.
This philosophy is supported on the large number of agreements that IMEP has reached with different companies and institutions at a regional as well as national level, which allow our students to get in touch with first-rate companies and professionals from the moment when they start studying at IMEP.
Face-to-Face and Distance Modality
The different qualifications offered by IMEP are imparted both face-to-face and on a distance-learning basis so that students can choose the one that best suits their needs.
Our advanced distance training platform, as well as our individualised tutoring system, makes it easier for students to take any of our degrees, regardless of their country/city of residence or of its work situation.
Practice periods and employment
Training at IMEP is characterised by its clear orientation towards the professional world, facilitating our students’ access to internships and jobs at companies and institutions all over Spain.
The possibility to carry out practice periods and to include them in their academic record makes it easier for our students to finish their university training having direct contact with the professional context in which they wish to specialise.
From IMEP, we offer our students personalised advice so that they can find the practical activities best suited to their profile, expectations and interests.
We additionally place advice and resources regarding employability which may prove very helpful when it comes to their integration into the labour market at our students’ disposal.
