AUB event managers are also experience architects. The world of events and festivals is full of well-organised project managers. However, the most successful Event Managers are those that can also design experiences. Focusing on that blend of project management and design skill is what makes studying Events Management at Arts University Bournemouth unique among event management courses. This course will provide you with the skills that you need to become not only the experienced manager that is at the heart of every event but an experience architect, a designer of time. The ultimate creative process is to conceive and deliver unique experiences that stand out from the crowd and becomes a source of inspiration to others. During your studies you'll work with peers from your course and collaborate across many relevant courses at AUB to design and deliver live events and festivals in each and every year of your course. What you will learn The practical nature of the course means that you have opportunities to build a portfolio of work experience that potential employers will find attractive. Alongside your academic studies you'll also be offered further opportunities to add to that portfolio including a formal work placement. It is the stories that you tell about the many projects you worked on and the contacts that you make with our stakeholders and Alumni that will help you to seamlessly transition into the career you want to pursue.
