Event management courses

The events industry is growing fast, and our event management courses prepare you for every aspect of it. You'll learn the principles of event delivery and risk management, and start to think strategically and creatively about events in a variety of commercial contexts.

At undergraduate level, you can choose to specialise in tourism, experiential marketing, arts and entertainment or sport and leisure. And throughout your study you'll undertake activity-based learning and work experience – culminating in the design and delivery of your own event in your final year. On our postgraduate event management courses you'll specialise further, with programmes that focus on strategic events marketing, international events and conference management.

All of our events courses benefit from the Department of Service Sector Management's close links with employers. Previous students have done work experience with Glastonbury Festival, Tramlines Festival, The Great North Run, Cancer Research UK and Sheffield United.
