If you are organised, want to enter the business world and like to lead, then Event Management may be the career choice for you!
What will I learn?
Students will gain the knowledge and understanding to successfully progress in a career within Event Management. This includes business principles, budgeting, health and safety, legal requirements and crisis management. You will undertake work experience and put on your own live events in order to apply your theoretical knowledge to the practical aspects of the industry.
