APIEM CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE

The APIEM Centre of Excellence scheme is a voluntary quality assurance scheme for public and private sector universities, polytechnics, colleges and training providers in Asia Pacific that offer courses in events/MICE management. Events/MICE management is a growing discipline within higher education institutions in Asia Pacific and includes a variety of different courses and modules.

The APIEM Centre of Excellence scheme is open to those universities, polytechnics, colleges and training providers that want to be accredited as providing courses and modules in events/MICE management that are of an international standard.

The benefits of APIEM accreditation are:

Students on APIEM Centre of Excellence courses can be assured of the relevance of their qualifications for careers within the events/MICE industry.

Events/MICE industry employers when recruiting new employees who have studied on APIEM endorsed courses can be assured that the programme of study has been assessed by APIEM as being appropriate and relevant for the needs of the events/MICE industry.

Universities, polytechnics, colleges and training providers can use their APIEM recognition as a means of recruiting and retaining students by demonstrating that they are one of the best places in Asia Pacific to study for an events/MICE management qualification.

Universities, polytechnics, colleges and training providers can demonstrate to events/MICE industry associations and organisations that their courses have been assessed through a rigorous process of accreditation to recognise excellence in events/MICE management education.

APIEM Centres of Excellence will receive guidance from APIEM following the audit on how they can continue to improve their educational provision in events/MICE management.

APIEM will share with its Centres of Excellence best practice in curriculum design, teaching, learning and assessment methods in events/MICE management.

APIEM will promote it`s Centres of Excellence through the APIEM website, social media, publications and at conferences/workshops where APIEM participates.
