International Event Management (Euromasters)

There is global recognition that the events sector needs trained professionals if it is to continue to thrive and develop. This programme offers you an engaging environment in which to explore the challenges faced by events professionals. A balanced set of modules will provide you with an advanced understanding of the international events industry and the core areas of business and management generally. A series of challenging, creative, real-world assessments will teach you how to design, plan, stage and evaluate different events. Central to the learning experience is the requirement to run a live event yourself. The structure of our Euromasters programme includes the opportunity to undertake a placement in industry between the two years of study. This experience gives students (particularly those with little prior work experience) a significant advantage in terms of employability upon graduation.
