Events

What’s in store for you?

The main focus of the Leisure & Events Management course is on how to create meaningful and memorable experiences for individuals, organisations and communities in a sustainable way. You will quickly learn to look beyond the allure of the industry and will truly learn to understand the business and organisational aspects involved. During the two years, you will acquire a solid grounding in marketing, business economics, new media, project management, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and communications. The focus is on events, but you will also gain practical first-hand experience in different leisure sectors like sports, arts and culture, leisure, tourism, and media.

Practical experience

You will work on assignments from real companies in the leisure industry. You often do this in small groups with guidance from lecturers with relevant practical experience. The programme also offers exciting fieldtrips and guestlectures.

You will conclude your studies with a research project focusing on the leisure sector, including topics such as sustainability, the future of leisure and innovation. In addition, you will do an internship for one day per week at a leisure company. 

Make a difference

The Leisure & Events Management programme challenges you to make a difference in the international leisure & events industry from a sustainable perspective. Sustainable because we are prudent with our living environment, with mankind and nature. It is how we create valuable experiences for everybody
