Event planning and event management is a career that can be in very high demand, as well as very lucrative. Although you can get into the industry by working your way through the ranks without any formal degree, that would take a considerable amount of time. With no degree it would be customary for you to start as an intern or assistant. Receiving a degree, however, allows you to enter the field with some background knowledge of what is expected for the job, in addition to training for each facet that the job entails. You may still start as an intern or assistant, but with a degree you have a chance at a shorter path to becoming an event planner or manager whether with an established company, or as an independent contractor.

Some of the Bachelor's degrees to consider for a career in event planning and management are hospitality, public relations, tourism, arts and entertainment management, communications, wedding planning, and international hospitality.
