Join Text ~ 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 with more to follow.

Important Information About The 'Degrees' And How They Work

These are not degrees to use in the Sims University world. These are actually careers designed to look like degrees. These 'degrees' are obtained through the individual rabbithole buildings and not through the Enroll In University menus.
There will eventually be over 50 'degrees' available to choose from. While they don't work in the Sims University world, they do require the University expansion pack. They work in the University rabbitholes in a home world and so will require you to have either those buildings or the Rabbithole Rugs or Doors in your home world. Many of them make use of the Student Union or University Hangout lot types so these should ideally be present, although they are not compulsory.
Each 'degree' is linked to a full career, either one of mine or one of EA's.

The degrees are either Bachelor's (BA), Master's (MA) or Doctorates (PhD). Each level equates an academic year, so the BA degrees are 3 years (3 levels), MA degrees are 4 years (4 levels) and PhD degrees are 7 years (7 levels).

This degree is a Bachelor's Degree and therefore has 3 levels. For a sim to enroll, they need 1 level in Social Networking and Charisma and can enroll at the School of Business. It was made on patch 1.69 and requires the University and World Adventures Expansion packs.

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, making a total of 15 Opportunities. 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 Career 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 simoleons. It can be hung on the wall and requires the University Expansion Pack.
There are no uniforms set.

The buyable degree is called 'University Diploma' available under Decorations --> Wall Hangings and is available for 0 simoleons.

The Levels

Bachelor's Year One: The first year will take a sim through the basics of event design and management, how to manage people and some basic communication skills. The course will involve travel and a lot of reaching out to people to organise various aspects of an event. This could be the time to start meeting influential people and establishing contacts.
Hours: 9.00am - 12.00pm
Pay: 0/hour
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Bachelor's Year Two: Finance management and working to a budget become hot topics in the second year of this degree. More foreign travel makes this year an exciting one. To excel this year, a deep understanding of social media and it's workings will be required and some practical work experience is highly advised.
Hours: 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Pay: 0/hour
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Bachelor's Year Three: The final year is a hectic one with plenty of practical experience to be gained from a variety of sources. Your managerial capabilities will be put to the test and a large case study will form the basis of your studies this year.
Hours: 11.00am - 2.00pm
Pay: 0/hour
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

The Opportunities

This gets quite involved and is hidden behind a spoiler for those who'd rather not know. If you're unfamiliar with the workings of the 'degree' careers, I strongly advise you read these through, as they will explain more of how the graduating works.
