WHAT TO EXPECT

All killer. No filler. BIMM’s events management courses are structured to help you develop into an industry professional. Every step of the way, you’ll be guided by our expert tutors – all current and respected figures with years of expertise to pass on. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go off the map, with a varied curriculum designed to prep your skill-set for employment.

For upcoming event managers making their first moves, nothing beats hands-on experience in the field. At BIMM, you’ll learn your craft at the sharp end. Run your own projects from inception to opening night. Collaborate with your peers and industry contacts. Harness our cutting-edge facilities as you sharpen your management and business chops. Complement those experiences with tailored tuition in Event Concept & Design, Live Sound Technology, Administration & Entrepreneurship, Event Logistics & Services, Financial Management & Funding, Events & The Environment and Event Promotion & Digital Media.

Our courses are both academic and rooted in the real world, providing the perfect balance between practical and technical skills, theory and analysis. Beyond the nuts-and-bolts of the business, you’ll be exploring and developing potential career pathways through research and professional projects, while learning the vital industry skills that employers will look for.

You’ll want to plug into one-of-a-kind networking opportunities and collaborate with like-minded movers and shakers during your time on the course. And that couldn’t be easier, with access to the BIMM Connect service letting you hook up fast with students, alumni, bands, songwriters, press agents, managers and fellow promoters.

One size doesn’t fit all – so BIMM’s Event Management course puts you in control, tailoring the content to hit your own personal targets. Dive into your core studies, but don’t forget to max out your skill-set with our five-week, mid-term BIMM Extra mini modules. Choose from topics as varied as Photoshop and Video Editing, Mindfulness Techniques, Essay Writing Skills, Entrepreneurship – and more.

Masterclasses

Only BIMM has the pulling power to bring in the heavyweights at the top of their profession. But you’ll get just as much value from the masterclasses hosted by up-and-comers, who were stood in your shoes just a few years before and are perfectly placed to pass on up-to-the-minute advice on climbing those first rungs of the ladder. So, watch and learn. There’s no better way to build your understanding of what it truly takes to become a top-flight event manager.

What Our Students Say

Napsugar Bardocz : BIMM Brighton

I love art but I would be a terrible artist; I could not concentrate merely on the creation, as this is just one part of the process. I like to appreciate the whole; from the source of the inspiration to the moment when the results get to the public and elicits a response. I’ve learned that if talent and creativity are to be publicly acknowledged, a management framework must be created.  This is why I want to pave the way for aspiring artists as an event manager. I’ve always been passionate about music but also about planning and organizing – combine the two and you get my course.

I’m a regular attendee at different music festivals during the summer and countless gigs throughout the year – like I’m sure everyone at BIMM is too. Before I moved to Brighton I was touring with one of Hungary’s most popular bands, The Carbonfools, as an assistant tour manager and I think that was the moment when I decided that this is the industry I want to work in.

I can’t imagine myself doing anything else anymore – this is not just a career, this is my passion!
