The growth of the events sector 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.<

The Business and Events Management programme at Anglia Ruskin University 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.
