The tailor-made course structure allows students to develop event management skills, and entertainment industry knowledge with a career-building approach. It is ideally located in Switzerland, the home of many large sports organizations like the UEFA and the International Olympic Committee and host to numerous international events every year.

As they take charge of campus events on and off campus, postgraduate students develop project management skills and business acumen before completing one, 6-month industry internship.
