This is the second visit to the Ticketmaster HQ for the University of Amsterdam’s event management program, which aims for both the students and their teachers to gain a greater understanding of the ticketing industry. The visit also supports the student’s studies in sports and event management with insight into the real life ticketing world, which they will be tested on at the end of their trip.
This visit provides a great opportunity for not only the students to learn about something that is not taught in school or at university, but also for Ticketmaster to engage with future talent and offer up the opportunity of gaining a summer position or one day joining Ticketmaster.
Lecturer Tinie Denton, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences said of the visit:
“Company visits are key to students not only because of the knowledge and experience that is shared with them but also to get an understanding for company culture. By meeting professionals in their work environment students can have a sense of how they would fit in. It definitely helps them to become more self concious and focused in building a relevant network towards a future career”.
