BA (Hons) Event Management

The BA (Hons) Event Management degree gives you hands-on experience of events management from the start. Events are held in all industries, so your skills will be in demand in the private, public and voluntary sectors. Your business skills could also lead to jobs in other areas such as sales and marketing, PR, or general management.

Throughout the Event Management course, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in workshops delivered by key organisations, including established festival organisers and national heritage bodies. This will help you understand how your learning relates to the real world. You’ll also be encouraged to undertake a sandwich placement, where you spend a year working in industry. You’ll graduate with knowledge and experience of running events, plus you’ll have essential business skills for all kinds of careers.
