Business Management and Events Management at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

A Combined Honours degree at Chester gives you the opportunity to study two subjects. You will spend a fairly even amount of time studying each subject area, with possible opportunities to declare a major – minor towards the end of your studies. Events Management We bring studying Events Management to life with inspiring and real experiences, interactive learning, access and exposure to the industry, and an opportunity to develop and manage your own events. You will gain much more than subject knowledge; we will help you develop the extra skills that employers are seeking, and you will leave us with experiences that will give you an edge at interview and in the workplace. We work closely with the Association of Events Management Educators and key industry stakeholders to ensure our course is current and relevant. Volunteering is an important element of your course that will help you to stand out when you enter the industry, and we offer an exciting range of opportunities such as Christmas parades, regional and national sporting events, music festivals and cultural events. Everything you study will prepare you to succeed in your future career. You’ll begin planning and delivering a real event as part of a team in your second year, as well as having the chance to shape your career path through a five-week work placement that suits your personal interests and ambitions. You will also have the chance to undertake an optional year-long placement after your second year, which really brings your course to life and will enhance your graduate employment prospects. Business Management Explore the dynamic world of business. Realise your amazing qualities. Develop real skills. Gain cutting edge knowledge. Your transformation from student to future business professional will begin from day one. Here at Chester you can either undertake the BA Business Management course or choose to study one of four pathways: Business Management (Entrepreneurship), Business Management (Human Resources), Business Management (Marketing) or Business Management (Finance). We will equip you with much more than business knowledge. Your future employers are seeking skills that we develop with you, meaning that you leave us with experiences that should give you an edge at interview and in the workplace. Most of what you study will be anchored to today’s business world, but we will support you to challenge assumptions and make relevant management decisions. By referring to top companies and emerging sectors such as cognitive science, financial innovation and data analytics you will be well placed to focus and develop your career.
