Comments about Master Events Marketing Management - At the institution - London - Greater London
The philosophy of this curriculum is based upon the assertion that events marketing is events management. At senior level in the events industry, it is the event marketers who not only deliver marketing strategies, but also devise the event concepts. It is the events managers who deliver these concepts. Event management and production organisations need qualified marketing managers, whilst nationally, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of events as part of an organisation's marketing communications mix. The course seeks to develop various skills and attributes, including your employability, enterprise and internationalisation. The philosophy behind the curriculum hinges on the concept of 'imagineering' - a new marketing and product development practice that relies on dreams, emotion and fantasy, from 'the Disneyfication of business' to the 'Experience Economy'. The course is designed to provide you with a mix of marketing and management theory, whilst real-life case studies and industry guest lecturers demonstrate how theory relates to practice. The concept of imagineering is applied to industry cases through project-based assignments to demonstrate how the marketing function can be extended to achieve the 'Experience Economy'. Another unique element of the course is the study of the relationship between marketing and management accounting. The course is multidisciplinary and is taught by staff who have event industry backgrounds and extensive research skills. Industry links feature strongly throughout the course.
The MA is a unique course aimed at those working in, or preparing to work in event marketing, marketing events or event management.
