Event Management Graduate

Caroline Flynn Event and Marketing Coordinator at Sonas apc

"The MSc in Event Management provided me with the opportunity to conduct research on a topic which ultimately resulted in me being recruited by the organisation I currently work for.

The highlight of the MSc in Event Management was conducting my primary research for my thesis, through this process I made some valuable contacts within the industry and developed a deep understanding of my research topic.

This course is ideal for someone who has an interest in event management but who wants to formalise that interest into a career. I would recommend someone to do the MSc in Event Management to allow them to gain a better understanding of the events industry from both an academic and practical perspective in both Ireland and internationally."
