Course summary

****Discover the fantastic opportunities that a degree in Events Management can bring. Develop the skills and contacts to let you find your place in this fast-moving, dynamic and exciting industry****Why Study With Us?****At Chester Business School we bring studying Events Management to life with inspiring and real experiences, interactive learning, access and exposure to the industry, and an opportunity to develop and manage your own events. This means that we develop outstanding events professionals upon graduation. Andrew Bowles, a recent Events Management graduate and now Events Assistant at Cheshire West and Chester Council commented: “I’m eternally grateful for my three years at Chester Business School. The lecturers have real, practical experience and know what it’s like working on live events. Without them I wouldn’t be in the position I am in today.” Volunteering is an important element of your course. We will help you to really stand out when you enter the industry. We offer an exciting and diverse range of volunteering opportunities such as Chester Christmas lights switch-on, regional and national sporting events, music festivals and cultural events. Our business campus is both state-of-the art and welcoming. This is a special and unique place that will enable you to flourish and grow from an undergraduate student to confident events management professional. You are a name here. We value your uniqueness. Throughout your degree course, you will be mentored and supported by a Personal Tutor. These are people who will support you through life’s challenges. You will also benefit from our Student Experience Representatives (SERs) who make sure that your voice is heard. We will equip you with much more than events management subject knowledge. We will help you develop the extra skills that employers are seeking. The world of events management is highly competitive, diverse and dynamic, but you will leave us with experiences that will give you an edge at interview and in the workplace. We work closely with the Association of Events Management Educators (AEME) and with key stakeholders across the events industry to ensure content is up-to-date, industry relevant, and embeds key events management skills throughout the programme.**Course details****Modules**Your transformation from new student to future events management professional will begin from day one. In your first year you will learn the fundamental concepts of events management and experience the events industry through field visits, speakers and practical activities. You will develop key management skills in project planning, marketing, service experiences, risk management, tourism and entrepreneurship. In year two, you will enhance your practical events management skills by creating and delivering a real live event to raise money for charity. You will further develop your cultural knowledge regarding events, as well as developing project management skills and techniques. You will start to shape your career path through a 5-week work placement that suits your personal interests and ambitions. Previous students have developed events while working for companies such as Storyhouse, Royal Caribbean International, and Welocalize. Your final year is tailored towards giving you the competitive edge you need to succeed in Events Management. You have an opportunity to explore how events are developed on behalf of clients to a professional standard, examine the role of Third Sector from an events perspective, and appreciate the management of major events. You will also have an opportunity to undertake an original supervised research project into a subject you select. Everything you study at Chester Business School will be relevant to events management and prepare you to succeed
