[BUC] Glittering in The Exciting World of Events Management

January 27, 2023 | Campus News

BERJAYA University College’s (BUC) event management programmes prepare graduates to become specialists in planning and executing a range of routine and complex events.

The events industry is booming and expected to see even further growth in the coming years. Gone are the days when events were limited to private gatherings and small conferences. Today events have since grown into larger-scale events such as festivals, ceremonies, concerts, conventions, book launches, promotions and product launches, trade fairs and theatre performances.
