What is Bachelor of Science (Hons) Event Management?

The events industry is a young and exciting industry that has expanded rapidly in the last decade giving rise to an ever increasing demand for professional event managers. This growth nationally and internationally has been fuelled by, among other things the increase in the number, size and sophistication of the events being organised and the realisation by companies of the important role events play in helping achieve objectives. Events can take many forms ranging from the very large sporting events such as the World Cup, Olympic Games and the Ryder Cup to music festivals such as Glastonbury, Live Aid and Slane, right through conferences, meetings and exhibitions held by the corporate sector to family occasions. Event management is the process by which an event is planned, prepared and produced and the event manager's job is to oversee and arrange every aspect of the event including the finance and sponsorship, marketing, organising and controlling all components, implementing and evaluating the design, staging and all other activities. The overall aim of the BSc in Event Management programme is to develop the individual students by equipping them with the appropriate knowledge, understanding and professional management skills necessary to be successful in the exciting and vibrant event industry through the provision of a carefully designed and academically rigorous programme.

Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
