Business and Events Management

BA(Hons) Business and Events Management brings together UWE Bristol's recognised expertise in event studies and business management. It’s ideal whether you want to specialise in the business of events, or events in business. Study the main disciplines and operational areas of business alongside specialist modules on event management functions, processes and values. Plan events from inception through to closure and evaluation. Explore areas of the industry including concerts and festivals, conferences and meetings, sporting events, weddings and celebrations. Bristol is a natural place to study events, with a thriving visitor economy and many businesses involved in event and festival management. Engaging with the local area is an integral part of the learning, teaching and assessment programme. Event organisations, suppliers and venues provide guest talks, placements, voluntary work and internships. An optional placement year allows you to build contacts and experience, and you’ll get a taste of running your own event in a collaborative project in your final year. Career options are diverse and include event project manager, contracts manager, event marketing manager and event experience officer. Some graduates use their business and management skills to start their own events businesses. The solid grounding in business and management ensures you have a broad range of career paths to choose from, and a skillset relevant to many other careers.
