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.
