Develop the skills, competence and confidence you need to thrive in the ever-changing events management environment. Our degree course gives you opportunities to help run local and regional events and festivals, including product launches, charity events, right through to major events such as the Olympic Games. Events management is a thriving industry undergoing major global growth and offering some of the most varied and creative employment opportunities across private, public and voluntary sectors. The growth of event-led policy brings stringent demands upon managers to tackle inherent problems with managing in the events industry (eg social resonance, ambiguity of objectives and conflicting logics, multiplicity of stakeholders, uncertainty of outcome etc) requiring astute and ethical management and leadership skills. The focus on responsible and sustainable practice is at the core of our delivery to help you overcome these issues. As leaders in driving forward tourism management, we offer the chance to study in the heart of Cambridge, with dynamic opportunities throughout the course, both inside and outside the classroom, to put your knowledge into action and plan, design and execute your own events. Alongside theoretical and academic studies, you will also take part in exciting field trips to leading European urban tourism destinations. Previous trips include Bergamo and Barcelona and a visit to Paris is planned for 2017.
