Postgraduates: What Next?

Last updated March 28th, 2013

As consequence of the current economic crisis, the current generation of postgraduates will have to work well into their 70s before they can take retirement; that’s half a century of work. It’s more important than ever, then, to choose a career path that’s not only going to be rewarding, relevant in the future whilst providing a good income and excitement. Consider then event management.
Over the last 10 years, event management has become a highly desirable career-path for postgraduates, looking for a vocation that is both rewarding and challenging. As an event manager, you must be highly organised, incredibly sociable, adaptable (especially under stress) and willing to “work hard, play hard”. According to The Guardian, a survey by YouGov noted that the majority of people who work in the events management industry “wouldn’t swap careers”. That’s a bold statement, given that the average person in 2013 is expected to have around seven serious jobs in their lifetime.
Boredom isn’t a possibility: no two projects are the same, and you’ll constantly be learning and developing new skills, as well as meeting new faces. Attention to detail is key, as is being able to think on your feet, focus on the end goal and manage a budget. It’s an immensely rewarding career.
Obviously, the rising popularity of events management means that competition for positions is at a premium. As a result, more than 50 Universities in the UK now offer event management courses, but it is the postgraduate market that is proving to be the most viable option. Whether you’ve graduated with a degree in English, Accounting, Media Studies etc, a postgraduate certificate in event management is a great way to get your foot in the door.
So if you are thinking of applying for an event management postgraduate course in London, then Event Course could be perfect for you. With a range of flexible postgraduate certificate programmes on offer, Event Course provide you with the skills needed to enter the busy world of event management. As one of the top event management postgraduate courses in London, many of our event management course graduates go on to find placements within their first year of graduating.
