Be prepared for responsibility and the rewards and problems that come with responsibility. It is very important to be comfortable making decisions and living with them. While it is impossible to be right all of the time the majority of decisions you make have to be correct.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Event managers are needed to generate event ideas and facilitate them professionally. From a global event like the St. Patrick’s Festival to regional food and sport weekends, public celebrations and festivals, event management has evolved into big business. This growth nationally and internationally has been fuelled by the increase in the number, size and sophistication of events. Ireland has a thriving events sector which hosts exciting and varied events and festivals all throughout the year.

Studying this course will give you practical and theoretical skills in all aspects of event management. The event manager oversees and arranges all aspects of the event. Students become knowledgeable in areas such as event planning and design, marketing, sponsorship, staging and health and safety.

Students are equipped with knowledge, understanding and professional management skills needed to be successful in the exciting and vibrant events industry.

As well as event specific subjects such as Event Staging, Event Industry Studies and Event Risk Management, students follow a broad business course with subjects such as Management, Marketing and Finance and Law being some of the key areas studied to ensure that our graduates are well equipped to be successful in the sector.

European Languages are becoming ever-increasingly important in the world of work and therefore students also study one European language.

To ensure that our students hit the ground running, there are two hundred hours of work placement to complete in first year. Students on the programme will also undertake a six-month professional internship/placement in Year 3.
