Abstract

Events Management is a course of study in the Philippines that is being embedded in programs such as Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management and Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management according to CHED Memorandum Order 62 series of 2017. This study will focus on answering the issue on why Events Management courses do not have a standardized process of planning, organizing, executing, and monitoring across HEI’s. The researcher used a descriptive-qualitative method. The participants of the study have spanned across three semesters of Events Management from academic years 2017-2018 and 2018-2019. Primary data were gathered through immersion and external observation. As a result of the study, the researcher has concluded that HEI’s across the country do not have a standardized process simply because of the differences on management styles by the school administrator. It is recommended that there should be a constant periodic review of the course syllabus to update references and methodology of teaching events management. Also, the researcher has developed a proposed model which is recommended to be adapted by HEI’s to achieve efficiency on the process of managing events. Keywords: Events Management, Tourism Education, Event Research, Tourism Management
