City Campus
Footscray Park


After developing a solid grounding in business in your first year, customise your degree with a major in Event Management.
This major provides a set of integrated units to develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the events sector. It builds on the minor in Events Management to equip students with the knowledge and skills to be successful in the planning, management, implementation and evaluation of event services and experiences. Graduates will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to enter the events sector after undertaking a range of studies that will allow then to apply both theoretical and operational knowledge whilst acting with integrity.
The major includes capstone units that provide students with the opportunity to draw on their prior learning in the course and further develop the capacity to apply this learning in new contexts. Strong connections exist to the events industry, offering volunteering, working and networking opportunities to assist students in getting a head start. The Bachelor of Business with a major in Events Management has for over 15 years produced industry leading graduates  who have honed solid business and operational skills, and real-life working experience gained through a mandatory work-integrated learning unit.
