You’ll receive practical training from research-active and industry-experienced staff in a truly multicultural environment, enhancing your knowledge of diversity and awareness of the cultural differences associated with managerial work in an international environment. Those are vital skills for working as part of a mixed-nationality workforce and for a mixed-nationality clientele.
This Events Management programme at Bournemouth University will help you to develop skills essential for working in the events sector, using theories and processes of project and operational management. You’ll learn about the event management cycle, including the planning, design, implementation and evaluation of a variety of events.
As an academically driven course, you’ll also learn to critically evaluate a range of theories and models relevant to events management. The practical element of this course focuses on the application of theories and models to event examples, including the organisation of your own live event as part of a group.
An optional 30-week work placement provides you with transferable skills working in a role such as Event Manager, Exhibition Development Manager, Event Coordinator, Account Manager or Project Manager. You can begin your placement once the taught units are completed, before you begin your dissertation.
Events range in scope, scale and complexity from mega events to corporate meetings. They cover activities from sport and culture to product launches and fundraising. As an event manager you must have abilities in a wide range of subject areas.
Graduates from this course are now working in organisations all over the world, such as Mehr Entertainment in Germany, Capital Club East Africa in Kenya and Moody's Analytics and Concerto Live in the UK.
