BSc (Hons) Events Management

The events industry is set to be worth £48.8b by 2020 (Business Visits & Events Partnership) which means there is a huge range of opportunities for students entering this industry. The events world has a wide range of sectors within it, from festivals to weddings and business events to experiential marketing. Sheffield Hallam University has nearly 20 years’ experience of managing Event Management courses and a track record of developing courses that fit the changing industry need. Our aspiration is to educate students to be ‘industry-ready’ once they graduate. We do this through a variety of applied teaching and learning, practical live events and innovative assessments.

Our teaching team has year of experience from across the event world, ranging from festivals, exhibitions, weddings, personal events and the experiential sector. Many staff still maintain some kind of industry presence as we see the value this brings to the classroom in being able to bring alive material.

Course Options

At the end of your first year, you have the option (subject to demand) to select a specialist area within your events degree to follow for the remainder of the course. If not, you can remain on the International Events Management course. The four specialist areas are:
