My course is International Events Management so an international study trip is an excellent addition. The university staff, both here and in Vilnius, worked very hard to organize a packed schedule for us. We visited a range of tourist attractions, convention centres, hotels and exhibition spaces. We also got to know the city through a number of tours. This was a vital part of our trip and aided us greatly with our studies.Samantha Cass, BSc International Events Management
During your first year studying International Events Management, you will build up an understanding of the key business concepts that underpin events management as an area of academic practice. Your practical skills and industry knowledge will be improved upon as the course progresses and optional modules in your second and third year of study allow you to specialise according to your interests or the direction in which you’d like to steer your career. International experience is offered through the International Project module in your second year of study. This project is delivered in conjunction with a European partner university.
Along with learning industry-specific skills, you’ll have chance to improve your employability during your time on the course. The Professional Development module concentrates on the essential abilities required for managerial employment: self-presentation, professional networking, project planning and multimedia communication are all focused on to help you perform effectively in a variety of roles.
This innovative module has been nominated for the Course and Curriculum Design award in the 2018 Guardian University Awards. One participant commented “It was thanks to this module that I gained a much better understanding of what employers are looking for and where I stand in comparison to that from the marks and feedback received… This proves to me I do have the experience and competencies sought after by employers. Realising this has really boosted my confidence.”
All of our BSc students can apply for a one year professional placement, which takes place between your second and last years of study.
This is an excellent opportunity to take advantage of and over the last five years, 90% of Salford Business School undergraduates taking a one year placement secured a 2:1 or 1st class Honours degree.
We will help you find out about vacancies and make the right connections with high profile employers through regular events and presentations.
