Events Management Careers

Whether you want to organise mammoth music festivals or become a charity fundraiser, we’ll work with you throughout your degree to make sure you’re perfectly primed for your career in events.

We’re proud of our graduate employment numbers. They speak for themselves – a testament to the benefits of our contemporary yet industry-focused degree. A degree that ensures you’re getting hands-on experience by planning, promoting and executing events before you even graduate. A degree that encourages you to travel the world to deepen your understanding of the events industry. And a degree that’s tailored to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes employers want.

Where could it lead? 

Plymouth Events Management graduates are highly skilled and highly employable. You’ll find them working:

  • as event organisers

  • in the arts sector
  • in the health service
  • as marketing consultants

What’s more, our course gives you the skills and experience to start up your own successful business. Alex Ludlam set up Student Shopping UK following a real-life, final year assignment – in which he saw the opportunity to organise shopping centre events that were tailored specifically for students.
