As preparations begin for Birmingham to host the Commonwealth Games in 2022, Birmingham City University is now the home of the first undergraduate Event Management based course in the UK to be accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

The BA (Hons) Event, Venue and Experience Management course sees students immersed in live event experiences as part of their studies, as learners explore future trends in event technologies and develop an in depth knowledge of the critical elements of venue and experience design. On successful completion of the course, students will not only graduate with a degree but also gain a certificate in Management & Leadership from the only chartered professional body dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence.

“The Event, Venue and Experience Management course has been a great success to date and the CMI accreditation further validates its strong links to industry and our commitment to developing work ready graduates and leaders of the future”, said Richard Oddy, Programme Director for Event, Venue and Experience Management at Birmingham City University.
