MPI Certified & EMP Designation Payment Portal

About MPI Certified 

As the leading education provider within the meeting and events industry, MPI prides itself on its ability to remain current with evolving trends in industry skills, knowledge, and thought leadership through its rigorous certificate courses & educational experiences via the MPI Academy. MPI embarked on a research-backed development process to learn more about not only what made college and university meeting/events programs successful, but also what presented as challenging or detrimental to the success of their program, and ultimately, their students. Using this research MPI has identified three primary competency areas that compose a robust and meaningful educational experience:

  • Quality of Instruction
  • Academic Rigor
  • Practicum Work Experience Through a submission and evaluation process, institutions can align themselves with the MPI's industry education competency standards to become aligned with the MPI Certified brand designation.

If you're an Associate’s/CE Program or Bachelor/Master’s Program, you'll be able to pay for your base fee and your annual fee using the payment tab on the left.

About the EMP 

Fueled by the need to provide the meeting and event professional community with the tools they need to quickly upskill, MPI has sought to examine the concept of future skills in a qualitative research project. After connecting with dozens of senior executives, from 30+ organizations, a clear pattern emerged suggesting a critical role and need for these future skills, particularly for the success of emerging professionals.

With that in mind, Meeting Professionals International has developed the Emerging Meeting Professional (EMP) designation to help new or emerging professionals solidify their competency in critical skills. Students will engage in a variety of learning methods to ensure that they understand and can apply these critical skills in their jobs.
