Course summary

Events range in scope, scale and complexity, from mega-events to community festivals, from traditional gatherings through to contemporary corporate events, boosting the economy, energising communities and attracting visitors. They cover a diverse array of activities, from sport, music and culture to product launches and fundraising. Sustainability has emerged as a key events management concept, and a successful events manager must have abilities in a wide range of subject areas. The Sustainable Events Management degree course crosses the boundaries between marketing, human resources, finance, planning and other business skills to develop multi-disciplined, creative leaders able to deliver the largest event down to the smallest detail. The focus on events as a management form represents a dynamic approach relevant to event organisations that strive to produce memorable experiences and fulfil a range of community, business and government objectives. The programme produces a graduate well-versed in management, with explicit business skills and knowledge and the ability to apply this to the contemporary demands of the events industry.
