Course content

Our MSc in International Event Management aims to assist you in developing an open, critical and inquiring mindset for both the social-scientific and the applied study of events and management, and equip you with the skills and knowledge for a successful career in the events sector.

You will critically evaluate existing knowledge in the field of event management, debate key issues such as sustainability, ethical event production and legacy planning, and consider strategic responses to the environmental forces impacting the events industry.

Industry expertise and application is drawn from areas as diverse as festivals, business events, marketing, consultancy, sport and leisure, all of which enrich the design and delivery of the course. This is an academic course with a high degree of vocational relevance. Its content and delivery are strongly underpinned by the team’s expertise, research activities and, in many cases, first-hand industry experience.

The course is suitable whether you are looking to convert from another subject area and pursue a future career in events or if you already have a grounding in events or related subject areas, such as business, management, tourism, hospitality or sport.
