Course summary

Do you want to study one of the most dynamic, diverse and fascinating subjects? Do you enjoy learning practically, as well as in the classroom? Then Events Management is the subject for you!

Course overview

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, career ready, events professionals.

Volunteering is an important element of your course that 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 parades, regional and national sporting events, music festivals and cultural events.

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 in the events industry to ensure content is up to date, industry relevant, and embeds key events management skills throughout the course.

Assessment

We use a broad range of assessment methods, including reports, academic essays, examinations, discussion groups, presentations, debates, practical work and portfolios of evidence. Most of the assessment is via various forms of coursework.

Job prospects

Opportunities for events management graduates exist in a wide range of events management and related industries in the public, private and third sectors, in the UK and overseas. Our graduates have found employment in event management organisations, major hotel chains (e.g. Hilton Hotels), charities (e.g. Guide Dogs for the Blind) and destination marketing organisations (e.g. Marketing Cheshire). Several graduates have also gone on to study for higher degrees.
