The programme is designed to develop proactive graduates who will be equipped to gain appropriate and rewarding employment and make an immediate and on-going
contribution within the workplace. As such they will be proficient in a team environment, have acquired skills that will enable them to reflect upon a problem or
situation and identify appropriate strategies, and have the confidence and capability to allow them to develop as life-long learners. The programme combines the
multidisciplinary nature of business studies provision together with awareness of the applied logistical and operational elements of event management. During the second and final years of the programme, students will be able to demonstrate their acquired knowledge and skills through the conceptual planning, design and implementation of their own events. There is a primary focus on the development of students’ intellectual and practical skills that will support them both as learners and as future

Distinctive Features:
