About your BA (Hons) Live Event Management Degree

Designed for the next generation of entrepreneurs in the multi-billion-pound UK live events industry, you’ll develop a host of practical, theoretical and creative skills in live production, event management and arts curation. Immersing you at the heart of the industry, you’ll gain the knowledge and abilities you need to run creative live music events across your professional career.

From the outset, you’ll become fluent in the language of the live events sector, learning a range of hands-on business, marketing and project management skills. With autonomy across all three years to focus on your areas of interest, you could potentially be running your own live events from your first year onwards.

Your three years of course modules will take you on a highly curated journey. As well as covering the fundamentals of live event management, the specialisation of this programme will enable you to demystify the live music and events sector, encouraging both your creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.

Equipment Checklist

Essential Equipment 

  • Pens and notepads 
  • A laptop fast enough to run image and video editing software. (Mac computers with internet access are available at ICMP, but it’s best to have your own laptop and internet access for personal study)

Don't forget, as an ICMP student you'll have access to exclusive discounts from leading music manufacturers - so, if you're thinking of buying new gear (from computers to instruments), it's worth waiting until you start with us.
