Course description

The growth of events in the tourism, hospitality and business sectors has led to a demand for graduates with practical know-how and business skills. This course aims to produce graduates with creative and strategic minds equipped to organise a wide variety of events, the first step in becoming an event professional. Whilst developing a broad knowledge of the industry, you will also be able to specialise in specific event sectors via our elective unit system. All of our units have been written in partnership with the events industry and our event partners, ensuring that they are on-trend. Throughout the course there will be opportunities to complete a range of additional industry short courses, volunteer at numerous events and work on live events projects. Manchester, as an internationally renowned events destination is ideally located for studying events management. Being in the heart of the city provides you with access to many major music, food and drink, sporting and cultural events and a multitude of conferencing venues, all year round. We also offer a four-year placement route where you have the opportunity to spend your third year on placement in industry. Our BA (Hons) Events Management course at the Manchester campus is accredited by the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
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 a lot better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella. 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.
