You will also learn how to put practical strategies into practice for hosting international events connected to sports, concerts, festivals, tourism, exhibitions and corporate hospitality.
The Professional Development module in the second year helps you to develop the skills you need – presentation skills, networking, interview techniques etc – to move more easily into successful employment. Over the progression of this course, you will have every opportunity to develop an exciting career as an international events management professional. In addition, you will gain a strong business education which will prepare you for a wide range of managerial careers.
Through the Study Abroad programme, you could choose to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world.
This degree is also offered with a Foundation Year, visit www.salford.ac.uk/ug-courses/business-foundation-year for details.
This course allows you to either specialise or follow an integrated route and the modular design gives you considerable choice.
All International Events Management students study the same modules in the first year, after which you are given the flexibility to review and change your options depending on which subjects interest you the most. This approach gives you a vital foundation in key business disciplines to support the subjects you go on to study in your second and final years. It also means that all students achieve the same level of business and management knowledge at the end of their first year.
