Event Management - Coventry University

Talk to anyone in the events industry and they’ll tell you that nothing compares to the buzz of a successful event – the feeling from seeing your ideas become reality and the appreciation from clients that you’ve delivered a first class service.  Our Event Management course is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to organise all manner of events successfully from conception to completion. More than that, however, we’ll give you a firm grounding in management, covering core management theory, such finance, economics, marketing, human resource management and project management. This gives you much greater flexibility to pursue a broader range of careers if you choose.  Our extensive links with the industry could allow you to engage directly with companies like the Ricoh arena, Coventry Blaze and the British Council. You’ll have the opportunity to organise and attend real-life events, experiencing each stage and progress from the bidding process, design and costing to logistics, marketing, implementation and feedback with the client. Our students have run overseas activities for the British Council and major music concerts at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), National Indoor Arena (NIA) and the Ricoh Arena. They’ve supported the World Cup Rugby Sevens and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Ltd. (LOCOG). Our strong educational partnership with Eventsforce, which offers specialist event management software training via a professional pathway, means ours are currently the only students in the UK to graduate fully trained on the Eventsforce software package.   **Key Course Benefits;** - Collaboration with the Students’ Union to promote and manage events on behalf of its many clubs and societies. - Links with local, national and international event management companies, such as Eventsforce, Fargo and N200, providing opportunities for direct work experience, both paid and voluntary. - Membership of the Association of Event Management Education (AEME), Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS), European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). - Access to a range of industry visits and fieldtrips, which has previously included visits to well-known event venues and talks from events professionals at the Echo Arena, Cavern Club and St. Georges Hall in Liverpool, and Aviva Stadium and Croke Park in Dublin. - Experienced teaching staff, with mix of academic and industry experience, including staff who have worked as operations managers in conference venues and luxury hotels, sports marketing companies and managing sport venues, as well as a committee member of the Association of Event Management Education (AEME).
