Forecast to grow to over £48 billion by 2020 in this country alone, the event industry is one of the fastest growing service sectors in both the UK and internationally. Businesses are investing more in events to get closer to their customers, increasing the demand for well-qualified events managers.
Our Master’s degree aims to provide specialist training and an in-depth knowledge of the event industry and full event management cycle for those who currently or seeking to work in this dynamic and exciting industry.

As members of the Association of Event Management Education (AEME) we follow industry trends closely. You will have the opportunity to examine actual business case studies, gain hands-on experience of managing real-life events and hear from industry speakers. You can further enhance your employability by undertaking a company internship (subject to application and additional fees), which has seen past students work for various event venues and organisations such as Compass at the Ricoh Arena and Festival de Rocamadour, in the Dordogne.

Career opportunities

Open to graduates of any discipline, our postgraduate degree offers a global perspective of managing events to help to prepare you for management roles in event planning, promotion, delivery and sales.

Careers in event management are diverse; you can work as an event organiser, conference centre manager or event marketing executive. You can also choose to specialist in certain types of events, such as exhibitions and festivals or sporting and cultural events.

The broad set of skills you should have developed, in the areas of business, management, marketing and finance, mean you should be ideally placed to move into more general management and marketing within the private, public and voluntary sector.

We will endeavour to give you the support of Employment Personal Tutors, who are industry trained, and our well-established employability support unit has an extensive network of employers with a wide range of internship possibilities. The employment unit also supports you with workshops and guidance on the various aspects of the employment process such as preparing your CV, interview practice and mock assessment centres.
