Join a cutting-edge Master of Science in experience, meeting and event design

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.

This programme is open to highly motivated students who want to work for companies specialising in meeting strategies, experience design and event planning. Featuring a multicultural class and internationally-focused content based on both strategic and operational management approaches, you will increase your knowledge and develop a wide range of complementary skills while experiencing a final year full of consulting projects and meetings with professional experts.
