To succeed in events management you’ll need an expert grasp of event marketing, financial reporting, project planning, event bidding and consumer behaviour – all of which can be learnt in an exciting degree that offers you the opportunity to tailor your study to your chosen event management interests.
Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Association for Project Management, this four-year course primes you with theoretical knowledge and the practical skill set needed to create and oversee events as diverse as product launches, fundraisers, corporate meetings, personal gatherings and mega-events like the Olympic Games.
During your studies you’ll get the opportunity to organise real-world events with other students, and in year three you’ll complete a 30-week work placement to build a network of professional contacts, bolster your CV, and ultimately enhance your employability.
In your final year, you’ll have a large range of options to study, allowing you to style your curriculum to suit your interests, passions and career goals. You’ll also benefit from a dynamic mix of guest lecturers, visits to local and regional event venues and real-life case studies.
