WHAT INDUSTRY IS SAYING ABOUT OUR GRADS
Thanks to CoEM for your excellence in skills development. [The student’s] ability to take on tasks from Day 1 has been outstanding, an absolute reflection of the depth of detailed education that she received during her course. Already she is an asset to our team.

Ruth Friedman – Events and Venue Professional
Trumpet Events has had many volunteers from CoEM over the past year. Each one has proven to be a valuable asset to our event teams. They are motivated and well prepared for life in the world of event management. 2 students have been offered internships. I have no hesitation in recommending any CoEM student to potential employers.
