Event Management degrees abroad

Studying event management will focus on the organization and planning of events within a variety of different sectors. Event planning can be a small occasion such as a formal party or something much larger like a music festival, it’s for the student to decide what their focus and specialty is.

With an events management degree it’s important that you get enough practical experience of organizing events. If you can become involved with student organizations at a university and organize events outside of your degree, then you will enhance your understanding of what’s needed and give your CV a boost.

Event Management program structure

Event management degrees are more commonly available in the UK and Europe than anywhere else in the world. In these areas, event management degrees are available at all undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

In the US you may be able to study event management at bachelor’s level as a major, but it may be for a specific sector or as part of a business degree.

Some event management degree programs will be accredited by a national body or organization, ensuring that it meets industry standards.

You’ll study the main areas of event management in modules. Some areas of study are compulsory, and others are elective for you to specialize in specific aspects of events. It’s likely that you will also have the opportunity for modules that are assessed on a large amount of practical work. Some of the most common module topics in event revolve around:

  • Project planning
  • Financial organization
  • Industry knowledge
  • Risk management
  • Stakeholder management
  • Event design
