Bachelor of Event and Tourism Management - MGB401

The events and tourism industries are expanding quickly, with tourism now directly contributing almost three per cent to Australia’s GDP. To help further drive growth and sustainability, a skilled and experienced workforce is needed – and this is where UC comes in.

Our course has a foundation in business studies and investigates the key elements you’ll need for a future career in events and tourism. You’ll graduate with solid teamwork and critical thinking skills, exploring events in both tourism and non-tourism contexts, such as sports, festivals, conventions, meetings and community activities. Your employability will be enhanced thanks to the many practical Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities you’ll undertake within the industry as part of your degree.

Study a Bachelor of Event and Tourism Management at UC and you will:

  • apply a conceptual understanding and a practical orientation in events and tourism management
  • critique and apply the management skills necessary to function effectively, strategically and ethically in management and entrepreneurial roles in event and tourism management
  • apply critical and creative thinking to address current issues in event and tourism contexts
  • critically evaluate and apply sustainability principles to problems in event and tourism contexts
  • work and communicate effectively with others to achieve common outcomes.
