Events management is a multi-billion pound global industry which is predicted to grow by more than 10% over the next decade, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Our BA (Hons) International Events Management programme combines residential trips to events destinations, regular visits to high-profile national and international events and venues, specialist guest lectures, and full involvement in organising a wide range of live events on our beautiful Regent’s Park campus.

We take a holistic approach to your professional and personal development, and seek to hone your skills and broaden your involvement in the industry as your studies progress.

Our programme covers many different disciplines from the global events management industry, and offers a practical but academically rigorous approach to undergraduate study.

You will experience a wide range of different events from the world of luxury, fashion, music, sport, international professional associations, corporates, charities, agencies, and many more, with the aim of developing your understanding of the benefits and challenges of organising events in today’s industry.

We provide regular opportunities for you to organise live events, at different stages, covering different roles.

By the end of the programme you will graduate as an accomplished global events manager, ready to lead and succeed in whatever area of the industry interests you most.

Our integrated business foundation year is designed to provide you with the core business, economics and entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to enable you to progress on to the BA (Hons) International Events Management.

During the year you will develop mathematical and analytical skills, conduct research and write in both academic and business English.

You will learn to analyse problems and propose a range of solutions you have personally developed. You will also be able to apply the knowledge and skills you have learned as part of a business development project.

Programme Brochure

Length 

This is a full time programme with integrated foundation. It takes 5 years to complete if you start in September or 4.5 years if you start in January.

If you begin the programme in January, you will complete your second term in the summer (May to August). This enables you to begin your second year in September and complete your degree in 4.5 years. You will study for the same number of terms as students starting in September, but over a shorter period of time.

Subsequent years of study then follow a standard academic year format of autumn and spring terms. 

Additional information

As part of the programme, you will complete at least one semester of Study Period Abroad where further investigation of the international events management industry takes place, and have the opportunity to complete a 4-6 month full-time international industry work placement (which can be undertaken in London or globally) as part of your degree.

Such placements are conducted with global event management agencies, international events venues, suppliers and tourism organisations, or multi-national organisations or brands, for example. 

An increasing number of students from the programme are securing full-time employment post-graduation with organisations they have been employed by as part of their studies at the University.
