I have been working in Administration for the past 7 years and part of my work has been organizing corporate events. As I am very passionate about the organization of any kinds of events I want to get into that area professionally.
But even with my experience I feel that without the right qualification I won't be able to get my foot into the doorstep. So therefore I am looking into further training on the basis of distance learning where I can get a qualification that's recognized europewide or even worldwide.
I have gone to secondary school and got a degree as a commercial assistant specialized in foreign languages.
I have done some research on the internet but all I could find was a BA in Events Management that takes Protected content fulltime. I also found a course called "diploma event management" that a company in the UK offers, but I'm not sure about it.
As I am currently living in Madrid I'd prefer a school in the UK or Spain but like I said on the basis of distance learning.
Can you recommend any courses or schools? I would appreciate feedback from anyone who works professionally in that area or has got any kind of adivse (is it too competitive? is the pay too low? etc)
Thank you so much for your help.
Best regards from Madrid
