Get the business skills and practical experience you need to pursue a career in the events industry, on our four-year degree course, which includes a foundation year. Play your part in a sector that's experiencing momentous global growth.
In the UK alone, the events sector currently contributes over £39bn to the economy. Its success is driving continual demand for specialist graduates, who not only understand the theory behind business and events managements, but have sound, practical experience.
Hosting events matters, and not simply because of the money that gets spent in the local economy. Major events focus the world’s attention on one location – increasing people’s interest in visiting, studying or investing there.<
Our degree course blends academic practice with the study of core business skills and management concepts, along with a live project. This allows you to develop and apply your knowledge, understanding and expertise – while also identifying specialisms that reflect your interests and abilities.
By joining ARU London, you'll be able to take advantage of our dedicated Employability Scheme, which gives you the chance to secure paid employment and invaluable, hands-on business experience.
