The course seeks to build professional competence, along with general leadership, management and critical thinking skills, aligned with the performance of the event manager role. The program includes a range of core subjects that seek to build both an understanding of the event project management process and general business-related skills and knowledge.
The aim of the course is to develop in students the requisite knowledge, understanding and skills to create, plan, market and conduct both public and corporate events in Australian and international contexts.
Graduates have the option of developing their careers in a variety of areas, including: festivals, exhibitions, sporting events, conferences/meetings, charities, non-government organisations, hotels/resorts/cruise ships and venues. Additionally, graduates may wish to develop their careers in specialist aligned areas such as event design/theming, event environmental planning, venue management or risk management/crowd control.
