You’ll also work closely with our industry partners across a range of fields including music, arts, fashion and corporate events. These partners will not only offer guest lectures throughout the course, they’ll also be actively involved in your development and act as mentors on practical modules and as recruiters, often employing interns and new graduates from our student/alumni pool. On graduation, you’ll have the experience and qualifications to forge a successful career in events management. You’ll also have a range of transferable skills in research, presentation, collaboration and self-management, which are highly sought-after in many industries. What our students say "What I enjoy most about the events management course is how multifaceted it is. By this I mean that it isn’t about the managing of an event alone. The course offers many aspects involving marketing, law, consultancy and human resources. For individuals who aren’t sure about what route to take within the events industry after graduating, the many different aspects the course offers can help students gain little insight into each of the paths that are involved with events management and can therefore help narrow down the pathway someone may be inspired to take."
