Your events master in a world-renowned Business School

The Meeting Industry, and more generally the Experience Economy, have been highly dynamic and growing sectors, serving the development and innovation of business, scientific, cultural, sports, political and local communities.

While incorporating the issues of digitalisation and sustainability, experience and meeting professionals have to develop a wide range of high-end skills, from strategic analysis and community transformation through to experience design and hybrid event management.

This also includes more specifically interactions for engaging people, key partnerships, risk management, bidding expertise, etc. During this programme, students are thus expected to act as consultants and professionals in the making: meticulous, empowered, proactive and trailblazing.
