About Events Management at Sheffield Hallam University

The events and leisure industries are an important part of cultural and business activity in the UK and overseas. They include private, public and voluntary organisations. This course meets the increasing demand for graduates with management skills in planning and organising events. It prepares you for a career in events management, and has a general focus to give you wide career options. You study events theory, policy and practice integrated with business management. We develop your understanding of planning and managing events and other leisure activities. Your learning involves taking part in seminars, workshops and projects in our modern facilities at City Campus. Projects and business simulation are an important part of your work. Through these, you experience the part venues play in the leisure industry and in events such as * sporting events * concerts * festivals * corporate events * business conferences * weddings. You can take a one year work placement in the third year. You also have a short period of events industry experience in the second year, which can be in * the UK * the USA * Canada * Europe. This valuable work experience develops your industry knowledge and improves your employability after you graduate. Placement providers include * Corkscrew Events * Sheffield City Council Events Unit * Sheffield International Venues * Acorn Adventure Holiday Company * Disneyland, Florida * Marriott Hotel, Baltimore * The National Trust * Sheffield Theatres * Marie Curie Cancer Care Charity * Universal Studios, Florida. The course focuses on the events and leisure industry, but the broader analytical and personal skills you develop are applicable to many careers. If you already have an advanced diploma, higher national diploma, foundation degree or equivalent qualification in this subject, you can take a one year top up course, based on the final year of this degree. This allows you to convert your qualification to an honours degree. Please see http://www.shu.ac.uk/courses/918A group project in the final year gives you the chance to produce a brief for a real event. In 2009/10, students worked on an event in the seaside resort of Cleethorpes for the local council.
