Event Management

Eileen Nagel

Do you want to get the ball rolling, perform, inspire people, work internationally and be creative?

You don't have to wait until you have finished your degree programme! That was not an option for me. I wanted to take on these challenges so that I could develop my skills and then enthusiastically start my career as an Event Manager after graduation.
 
That is why I looked for a university with a practical orientation that also offers a degree programme in an international context. After participating in the "IUBH Trial Studies" I was convinced that I could apply and further specialise my talents and skills at the IUBH.
 
In the first semester I already learned the basics of event management, and there was always a concrete application to real events. The opportunity to meet representatives from various branches of the event industry during "Career Days", and the chance to ask specific questions, is a special feature of the IUBH. It shows that combining theory and practice is the key objective of their teaching methods.
In the third semester my classmates and I were given the task of organising the university's annual Christmas market: Facts, figures and theory were brought to life. The enthusiasm of the visitors motivated us for further commitment to our studies.
 
The insights I gained from these practical experiences paid off in my internship. I chose a leading communication agency for events: STAGG & FRIENDS. Due to the agency's large number of international projects I travelled from site to site with the team and was actively involved with the organisation and realisation of events. The motto was, "Right in the middle, instead of on the sidelines"! Until this day my fondest memory is still the Mercedes-Benz Euro Training*. This immersed me in the exciting world of business and allowed me to grow beyond my limits. Due to the fact that the training took place over a three months period, proving one's stamina was key!
The excellent English language skills and practical experience I gained during my degree programme have helped me orient myself in corporate structures and to interact with corporate clients with the necessary know-how.
 
With the skills I developed at the university I was able to devote all my attention to projects and to experience what excites me about the job of an event manager: Get concepts rolling, coordinate events and shape them in a creative way.
