Course content

Forecast to grow to over £48 billion by 2020 in this country alone, the event industry is one of the fastest growing service sectors in both the UK and internationally. Businesses are investing more in events to get closer to their customers, increasing the demand for well-qualified events managers.

Our Master’s degree aims to provide specialist training and an in-depth knowledge of the event industry and full event management cycle for those who currently or seeking to work in this dynamic and exciting industry.

As members of the Association of Event Management Education (AEME) we follow industry trends closely. You will have the opportunity to examine actual business case studies, gain hands-on experience of managing real-life events and hear from industry speakers. You can further enhance your employability by undertaking a company internship (subject to application and additional fees), which has seen past students work for various event venues and organisations such as Compass at the Ricoh Arena and Festival de Rocamadour, in the Dordogne.
