Discover how business and events can come together in a dynamic and fast-paced sector with this two-year accelerated degree. You will benefit from close-knit classes and insight from experienced lecturers. This course starts each September and is awarded by the University of Surrey.
Business and Events can both go onto a range of career paths. Studying these two subjects together will give you a broad overview of business industries and environments, as well as developing project management and organisational skills. The combination of Business and Events will equip you with both business and creative skills to take forward into your career.
At Farnborough, many of your lecturers will have experience working in a range of business settings. This will give you a full insight into your subject in the classroom and beyond. You will be taught in classrooms rather than large lecture theatres, which means your classes here will feel more personal, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions, receive feedback and become friends with your new classmates.
This degree is suitable for those with an interest in Business and Events, who want to pursue a career path or further study in either business or events. You might currently be studying a Level 3, A Level, or Access to Higher Education course, be returning to education after a break, or wish to transfer from another higher education institution.
