Our Events Management programme is designed to give you the academic and hands-on skills required to succeed in all parts of the events industry. By the time you graduate, you’ll be more than equipped to organise a wide variety of events, bringing a creative and strategic mind-set to each and every challenge.
Along the way, you’ll develop a broad knowledge of the industry and, via our option units, specialise in those sectors you’re particularly interested in. All our units are created in collaboration with industry partners, ensuring they are relevant and up-to-the-minute.
