NHL Stenden's Leisure & Events Management programme prepares students for a career in a variety of leisure fields, like sports, leisure theme parks, events, or arts & culture.
If you would rather run Disneyland instead of visiting it, this programme is the right place to start. You will thrive here if you are curious, creative, enterprising, and a born organiser. Work on real-life projects during this 2-year associate programme, while learning everything there is to know about the multi-billion-euro leisure industry.

Year 1 - Introduction to the industry
As a first-year student, you will discover some of the trends and developments that have shaped – and continue to shape – the leisure economy. In addition to exploring leisure management and marketing, you will be part of a team of students working together to start your own business, or participate in a field trip to the Veluwe nature reserve.

Year 2 - Deepening of subject matter
You will be tasked with organising an event or project for a client in your future field and will enrich your student experience by taking field trips to one of the Wadden Islands in the north of the Netherlands and Disneyland Paris. In addition, you will explore the intricacies of project management, imagineering, concept development and research. In this year you will also graduate from the Associate Degree.
