OVERVIEW Our Events Management programme is designed to give you the academic and hands-on skills required to succeed in all parts of the events industry. By the time you graduate, you’ll be more than equipped to organise a wide variety of events, bringing a creative and strategic mind-set to each and every challenge. Along the way, you’ll develop a broad knowledge of the industry and, via our option units, specialise in those sectors you’re particularly interested in. All our units are created in collaboration with industry partners, ensuring they are relevant and up-to-the-minute. Being in a trendy, buzzing city like Manchester means you’ll have an internationally renowned events destination on your doorstep. With year-round music, food and drink, sporting and cultural events, there are few better places around the country to discover opportunities to gain hands-on experience. Manchester is home to major venues and is an ideal base to begin your career in events. Every year, the city hosts internationally renowned music, sports, cultural and food and drink events. Not only that, Manchester Met is ranked in the top 10 in the UK for Hospitality, Leisure, Recreation and Tourism, in The Guardian University Guide 2020. Outside of the lecture theatre, we offer plenty of opportunities to help you gain hands-on experience. You could complete an industry short course, volunteer at events, or work on live projects with our industry partners. There’s also an opportunity to spend a year on placement to put your skills into action. By the time you graduate, you’ll be more than equipped to organise a wide variety of events, bringing a creative and strategic mind-set to each and every challenge. Choose a placement or study abroad – the course offers real flexibility as you will enrol on the three-year course and then decide if a placement or overseas study is right for you once you have started your studies. You don’t have to decide now. If you opt to undertake a placement or study abroad your course will normally be four years full-time. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
