Description

Advertisement

During this course you will develop your understanding of events operations, planning, risk management, marketing, finance and strategy in the context of a wide variety of events, including conferences, exhibitions, festivals, product launches, trade shows and sporting events.

By using guest speakers, industry days and having the chance to work on real life problems, you will be able to combine theory with practice and gain the skills and confidence you need to manage your own events. You'll get involved in consultancy work through the Buxton Fringe Festival, the National Student Conference and our
own Conference and Events Unit, which promotes the Dome.

We regularly work collaboratively with professionals in the industry, so you'll have opportunities to work on exciting projects. We're currently working with the Llangollen International Eisteddfod (Festival), Capita Symonds and Showsec, and on major events such as Glastonbury. Our team specialises in events management, not just generic business, so their industry experience will be brought in to
their teaching. One member of staff was responsible for risk management when Liverpool became the Capital of Culture and another worked on safety aspects for events such as the London Marathon and the stunts for Top Gear.

You can study this course full time or part time. You'll learn through on campus teaching, e-learning, block study and/or a combination of these options to suit your individual needs.
All the modules you'll study involve experiential learning, so you'll be able to add to your skills base in your individual portfolio.
