VMS Graduate Institute
The Venue Management School Graduate Institute (VMS-GI) is held at the OGLEBAY RESORT & CONFERENCE CENTER, in Wheeling, West Virginia. This training program for venue professionals is considered one of IAVM's benchmark programs in venue management.
The Graduate Institute is advanced education for venue professionals covering management theory, professional ethics, leadership, human resource management, problem solving, and decision making. The goal, to expand an individual’s management techniques, and leadership skills. The Graduate Institute is more conceptual than VMS, yet not as advanced as IAVM's Senior Executive Symposium. Consider it “The Next Level” for Venue Managers.
Attendance at VMS and VMS-GI allow participants to earn credits toward IAVM's Certified Facilities Executive (CFE) program. Attendees who successfully complete the two-year school can earn 40 points toward the 300 total points required for application to the CFE program. Learn more about obtaining your CFE.
