In addition to other business subjects you will explore the background to the events industry and gain an understanding of event management processes through an introductory events management module.
Events management knowledge and understanding are expanded. Additionally, as part of a group, you will organise the planning, implementation and evaluation of a live event.
You will study more specialised events management subject areas. Another exciting opportunity will be the creation of a business plan for an event organisation. Research skills are developed through a research methods module which will be delivered within an event management context as will your appreciation of the strategic aspects of event management through a case study of Event Scotland.
All students will complete a dissertation in the Honours year. Further specialised study includes the comparison of international events issues, and analysis of event impacts. You will also be asked to reflect on your experiences gained so far and capture this in a portfolio.
