Events is one of the most dynamic, exciting business sectors, and our International Event Management degree will equip you with the knowledge, practical skills and experience needed to professionally manage events in a variety of areas. You’ll benefit from industry guest speakers from companies such as Harley Davidson and field trips, from Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour to projects further afield in the Gambia. You will gain practical experience to plan and execute your own event, and the optional placement year is an excellent opportunity to build contacts and gain an advantage in the job market. In your second year, you have the opportunity to focus your studies further and specialise in marketing by moving to our International Event Management with Marketing BSc(Hons). As members of the Association for Events Management Education (AEME), we have a longstanding association with the field. Our staff have backgrounds in corporate, cultural and sporting events sectors, and are involved in a wide range of applied sociological and industry-related research. Don't meet these entry requirements? For students who do not hold the academic qualifications or experience required for entry to this course the Business Management BSc(Hons) with Integrated Foundation Year is available to prepare you to progress onto year 1 of this degree.
In your first year you'll study the dynamics and operational aspects of the event industry and the principles of business management. You will also deliver a small fundraising event. In year two, you will plan and deliver an event using the project management skills you've learnt, gain a fundamental understanding of risk and crisis management, and explore the many challenges that event managers face. In your final year you will examine the growth of the international event industry and learn how to take a strategic approach to management. The wide range of optional modules on offer will allow you to specialise in an area of personal interest.
