Course summary

Why choose this course

Events entertain, inform and inspire people across the world. Joining our MSc International Events Management course puts you in a position to understand how they are envisioned, planned, staged and tailored to global audiences. Moreover, the course gives you the strategic planning skills to organise events that will achieve political, economic and social objectives.

Alongside our international reputation and impressive global connections, studying with us will mean you’ll learn from tutors with experience spanning festivals, sports, MICE, and non-profit events, and from talks by top industry experts.

What you will study

Global events represent an exciting, dynamic, ever-changing sector, which demands creative problem solvers.

Our course and facilities provide an engaging environment in which you can develop and understand the challenges faced by events professionals.

You’ll take part in a series of modules designed to give you a forward-thinking understanding of the core elements of the industry and the skills required to be an effective businessperson and manager in this sector. You’ll also have the opportunity to take part in challenging industry-relevant assessments that will teach you how to stage and evaluate different types of events. Better yet, this includes the chance to run your own live event as part of a small management team.
