Kayleigh Jones graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Events Management in 2017. She did extremely well in her dissertation which focused on how event managers create prestige value for corporate VIPs. Kayleigh’s tutor Dr Miguel Moital challenged her to prepare a manuscript based on her dissertation to be submitted to the European Journal of Tourism, Hospitality and Recreation. To Kayleigh’s and Miguel’s delight, the paper was accepted after very minor modifications (which shows the high quality of the submission). The article is free to download from the publishers website. In this post on the undergraduate blog, Kayleigh talks about the experience of doing her dissertation and shares her feelings upon seeing it published.
