Events Management ‘Degree’ Career

Base GameWorld Adventures University Life

Managing events can be a time-consuming task but it does open a Sim up to a whole new world. From weddings to charity fundraisers, anniversaries to retirement parties, an event planner would have a range of styles and events to work with. A degree in Events Management could be the ticket to a new world, if you’ll let it.

The next in the series of ‘degree’ careers is the Events Management Degree. This degree is a Bachelor’s Degree and therefore has 3 levels. For a sim to enroll, they need 1 level in both Social Networking and Charisma and can enroll at the School of Business. It requires the University Expansion and World Adventures expansion packs. For more information of the fake degrees, please visit the Deans Office.

This ‘degree’ career requires the Nraas Careers mod in order for it to show up.

Each level has 5 opportunities available for the student to participate in. The Events Management degree participates in the Live Events Project which is a three-part opportunity set with one opportunity per level.

The degree promotes into the Event Planner although the career is not compulsory. If your Sim graduates with a BA in Events Management, they can promote into level 6 of the Event Planner career.

I’m currently unable to add expansion pack items as career or opportunity rewards so I’ve made the University Diploma plaque from the Uni expansion buyable for §0. It can be hung on the wall and requires the University Expansion Pack.

There are no uniforms set. I recommend visiting the University Essentials page for a list of recommended mods to enhance the experience.
