This two-year programme is designed to give you the skills, knowledge and expertise necessary to enter a career in event management. Additionally, it will develop your understanding of the role of business in society and develop knowledge of the main functional areas; accounting, marketing and human resources. You will develop an understanding of how to manage different events within different areas, such as sports, tourism, arts and theatre. You will examine the importance of incorporating health, safety and security issues into event planning and design as well as identifying potential risks and proposed solutions. You will also look at the importance of event management within society and analyse the political, economic and environmental costs and benefits of events.
