Valentina Defendini Event Management Graduate (IAPR)

I only have very good things to say about the Event Management distance learning course I took with the Irish Academy of Public Relations. I really enjoyed working with my tutor, she was always very constructive in her feedback and motivated me to continue keeping up with the good work. The fact that there is a deadline per each assignment, even if it was tough at times, it was a great motivation to allocate time to study and work on the assignment. I really felt a great sense of achievement after completing the course and I could only recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about event management.

Wahab Bou Hamdan Event Management Graduate (Orient Planet)

To anyone considering a job in event management, go ahead and get this diploma as it will boost your career to a new level. OP Academy team is friendly, professional and always ready to support, and the instructors are the best in the field.

Rami Abbas Event Management Graduate (Orient Planet)

As a student, I pride myself in graduating from OP Academy. The entire course with OPA was convenient, very helpful and perfect for busy professionals. Most of all, for someone with very little background in Event Management, I was not expecting to ace the course. Eventually, after finishing the Diploma, I’m pretty satisfied with practicing Event Management on the ground. I was already considering taking a new course as early as being halfway through Event Management. I have been truly motivated, and I am very thankful to the coaches!

Ana Saá Event Management Graduate (IAPR)

The Diploma in Event Management course has given me the knowledge to organize from small personal events to larger professional productions. Thanks to the experience of the professionals from the Academy I have learned how important it is to have everything under control in the organisation of events. This diploma is an important international acknowledgement in my professional career as a journalist and public relations practitioner.

Nivedita Aiyer Event Management Graduate (IAPR)

Being based at home, I was able to study something that I have wanted to do for a long time without having to worry about childcare etc. The course was interesting, challenging, and rewarding. I learnt a lot by following the programme. It helped me to understand where my strengths and weaker aspects lie. All assignments were given comments which helped me understand if I missed something. Thank you for making this course so enjoyable!

Dalija Panduric Event Management Graduate (IAPR)

Diploma was very well structured and the CA we had to do for the final grade was so helpful to learn academic writing. I enjoyed the course tremendously and the great experience I had definitely helped to set me on the path of finishing BA Hons in HRM. I would recommend the course to anyone who is looking to understand the Event Management or work in the field. I am working in the tech industry and have found my diploma very useful when organising diverse and inclusive events for the team.”
