The Event Management honours degree at Chichester has been designed to provide you with the relevant skills and experience to work within one of the fastest growing and most dynamic sectors of the service economy.

The programme has been designed in consultation with professional event organisations/companies to ensure an appropriate balance between the academic context for events, and an appreciation of the applied logistical, business and operational elements of event management. A unique characteristic of the Event Management degree at Chichester is the emphasis on an applied approach to teaching and learning, via direct engagement with the processes and people relating to the event industry, culminating with students organising and running two of their own events during the 3 years of the degree. Delivered alongside the Tourism and Business Management degree programmes, the event management degree route draws on the skills and expertise of teaching staff from a range of disciplines, including business, sports, finance, events, tourism and the arts. Staff on the degree programme are members of the Association of Event Management Educators.
