Events Management (Joint Honours) BA/BSc (Hons)

Our Events Management Joint Honours course offers a practical approach to the successful management of a wide range of events. Experiences are at the heart of this degree course, so you will have the opportunity plan and deliver an event every year. There are numerous opportunities to engage in work placements, project work and to network with successful events businesses.

Throughout the course you will learn the principles and theoretical frameworks related to events management and how to apply this theory in practice. You will cover the following course themes: logistics and operations management, risk management, health and safety, strategy, ļ¬nance, event communications, project management, sustainability, economic and social impacts of events.

Our experienced teaching staff combine the academic aspects of the course with their own professional backgrounds in the events industry. You will gain a broad understanding of the core business knowledge needed in the sector which is supported by regular guest speakers from industry. The course offers a wide range of options to suit a variety of interests and aspirations.

Our links with industry provide you with opportunities to gain valuable work experience alongside your studies. You can select two subjects as joint for stage one. You may then continue with equal emphasis on two subjects as a joint degree in stages two and three, or switch to a major or minor split. The degree title is derived from the two subjects.
