Student review
I would highly recommend some one who wants to get into Event Management to complete this course. The benefit of doing a business degree in conjunction with the Events side is that you’re able to gain a saturated focus in all elements of business and commerce. When it comes to getting an Events job, a lot of the desired positions do require a business mind frame, knowledge, and terminology that you’ll learn from the business side of the degree. On the Events side, you do get to engage with academic staff who have worked in that industry and are extremely passionate about what they teach.
