Course content

The events sector is a multi-billion pound industry, providing a significant contribution to regional, national, and global economies. It requires adaptable and highly skilled professionals who understand the processes of event planning and have the ability to manage in challenging, yet highly rewarding, environments.

This internationally-focused programme provides students with the opportunity to develop their understanding of the dynamic socio-cultural, economic, and political contexts in which events are conceived and executed. The programme features important contemporary themes, such as sustainability, entrepreneurship, the new marketing environment, and the role of events in society, and aims to develop the knowledge and skills needed for event management, equipping graduates with high order managerial and intellectual skills.

There is an emphasis on strategic insight and a critical understanding of the operating environment. Traditional teaching methods are augmented by industry events and workshop.

The programme is available for either a September or February start.
