This exciting and vocationally-relevant degree brings together UWE Bristol's recognised expertise in event studies, management and tourism, and is primarily for those wishing to specialise in the business of events and events in business. You will study the main disciplines and operational areas of business alongside specialist modules focusing on management functions, processes and values in events - from inception through to closure and evaluation. You will also explore diverse parts of the industry such as music concerts and festivals, conferences and meetings, sporting events, and weddings and celebrations. Course content is continually refreshed and connected to the real-world, and is delivered by experienced, research-active professionals in a city region with a national and increasingly international reputation for its events and festivals. Our connections with event organisations, management companies, suppliers and venues add value to the degree, bringing opportunities for guest talks, site visits, placements and voluntary work. An optional placement year allows you to build contacts and networks, and every student gets a taste of running an event by collaborating on a 'live', team-based project in their final year.
