How Does an Event Management Course Benefit Your Career?

Last updated November 30th, 2018

Ever thought that it’s not what you know, but who? In the event planning circuit, it’s easy to believe that’s the case. Though entering that world of seemingly disparate connections requires more than just serendipity and more often than not Events Managers can trace their connections back to their events training or management degree.

It’s a well-known fact that the life of a student places as much emphasis on their social landscape as academic – and for good reason. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals provides the opportunity for creative synergy as you learn and grow together.

In the corporate events marketplace, establishing yourself within a network of students, teachers and alumni of a well-accredited course can help open doors (usually to great events…). We’re proud to say that we’ve placed over 400 students in event planning roles and that this number continues to grow as we see our corporate events and business management students flourish throughout their diplomas.

A learning environment which brings experience

You not only gain valuable connections through events training qualifications; you enter an environment for learning that works for you. Designed to provide you with an immersive education, whether it is events training or business management, the fiscal cost of education is outweighed by the quality and quantity of knowledge and understanding it delivers.

Throughout the industry, experience on a management degree or in event planning can help make you stand out as a candidate with the most transferable business skills – benefiting you throughout your career even if you decide to change industries.

Studying creates a safe environment to learn and ask questions – unlike on the job training, a corporate events training course will provide you with experiential learning whilst respecting your interest to learn vital event planning skills (you won’t have to fetch cups of tea for your tutor). That respect for education continues outside of the classroom, with many recruiters stressing the importance of a solid foundation of skills in job candidates.

Whether you’ve completed a management degree or an event planning undergraduate diploma, having a qualification on your resume will show your passion and commitment to future employers along with providing you with the knowledge you need to hit the ground running.

An events training environment also provides you with the flexibility of moving between roles in event planning and business management; enabling you to find a role that suits you – from company events manager, festival planner or venue manager.

The confidence factor

Events training courses which team your personal development with experiential learning and an accredited qualification are the fastest routes into the corporate events industry. They also provide you with the confidence to take on projects from inception to delivery; understanding all aspects of the event planning process and business management.

With a new found confidence in what you know you’re likely to find it easier to meet the “who” – giving you a full circle events training experience.
