Why you should study Event Management 

Studying for a degree offers various advantages that can help you in your professional career. You develop soft skills and abilities such as scientific research, which are important for your professional development and which you could not acquire in an apprenticeship. Certain positions and thus also salary levels can only be reached with an academic degree. Lifelong learning is also becoming increasingly important for our society and a Bachelor's or Master's degree simply ensures you better career and promotion opportunities and a successful future. 


This is what your Event Management studies at the IU look like 

What do you need to be a successful event manager? Definitely a well-founded scientific as well as practically oriented education in Business Administration and Macroeconomics. With the most modern management methods, especially adapted to the event industry, so that you can immediately take over professional and management tasks later on. Are you interested besides the event industry also in tourism and hospitality? This is also included in your bachelor's programme in Event Management. Not enough yet? Just continue to specialise. A wide range of marketing and management topics are available to strengthen your management skills, leadership skills and soft skills. Team projects such as Design Thinking and Digital Transformation as well as studying foreign languages complete your Event Management studies. 

 

Outlook for the future: What you will do after your studies 

Your future main tasks as an event manager include the conception, planning and implementation of all kinds of events.  Including communication, budget responsibility and evaluation. Especially for business events, MICE events (meeting, incentive, congress, exhibition) - on a national and international level. Accordingly, your intercultural and ethical skills will be trained. Sport, culture, economy, tourism – as a graduate of the Event Management B.A. programme, many doors are open for you. Especially after the pandemic, innovative ideas and forms of live communication are emerging that require new qualifications.
