In October the Convention Industry Council will hold it's Hall of Leaders Celebration in Las Vegas. On our third podcast we sit down with Carol Krugman, CMP, CMM, M.Ed. of Metropolitan State University of Denver to discuss her being recognized this year by being inducted into the Hall of Leaders.
In her current role as the Chair of the Department of Hospitality, Tourism & Events at Metropolitan State University she lead the development of a Bachelor of Science program in Event and Meeting Management. It's currently the only baccalaureate program based on the international standards set by MBECS (Meeting and Business Event Competency Standards) and the CMP International Standards. Prior to her work work at the university, she was a senior manager for two global communications agencies as well as president of her own international meeting management company.
We talk about the development and the evolution of formal educational standards like MBECS for the meetings industry over the past thirty years. The significance of a stand alone degree program in event management and the next steps and future of education in the industry.
