This course teaches you how to become a professional international events manager in a modern business environment. A core strength of the course is that you develop the professional attributes of future event managers. By studying events theory, policy and practice, alongside gaining real-world experience, you learn what it takes to plan and manage memorable and successful events. The international events industry includes private, public and voluntary organisations and spans a range of types of events including conferences and meetings, exhibitions and trade fairs, incentive travel and performance improvement, corporate hospitality and corporate events, outdoor events, festivals and cultural events, music events, and sporting events. In the final year, you create and run your own live fundraising event for a charity. Past students have delivered networking events, fashion shows, gala dinners and music festivals. You have the opportunity to apply the skills you’ve gained by taking a one-year paid work placement. Through the course you have the opportunity to gain your BIIAB Level 2 Award for Personal License Holders and to work towards your Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) accredited Event Safety Management Certificate to further enhance your CV. Our links with industry mean that you can also hear from a wide range of guest speakers.
