Subject

Hospitality management

Develop the skills, competence and confidence you need to thrive in the ever-changing events management environment. Our degree course gives you opportunities to help run local and regional events and festivals, including product launches, charity events, right through to major events such as the Olympic Games.

Events management is a thriving industry undergoing major global growth and offering some of the most varied and creative employment opportunities across private, public and voluntary sectors.

The growth of event-led policy brings stringent demands upon managers to tackle inherent problems with managing in the events industry (eg social resonance, ambiguity of objectives and conflicting logics, multiplicity of stakeholders, uncertainty of outcome etc) requiring astute and ethical management and leadership skills. The focus on responsible and sustainable practice is at the core of our delivery to help you overcome these issues.

As leaders in driving forward tourism management, we offer the chance to study in the heart of Cambridge, with dynamic opportunities throughout the course, both inside and outside the classroom, to put your knowledge into action and plan, design and execute your own events. Alongside theoretical and academic studies, you will also take part in exciting field trips to leading European urban tourism destinations. Previous trips include Bergamo and Barcelona and a visit to Paris is planned for 2017.

Assessment methods

You can expect an eclectic mix of coursework, essays, exams and activity-based assignments. This is reflected in two live project modules (year 2 and year 3), whereby the final major project will involve the delivery of a local/regional event external to the university, that draws upon intellectual knowledge gained, understanding of theory, policy and major practice, and a short report linking the project with course outcomes to consolidate all learning outcomes required as part of the successful completion of the degree.

All assessment is designed to allow you to demonstrate what you’ve learning from modules, and to make sure you’re developing the knowledge and skills you need to successfully complete the course.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
