What you will learn throughout the Event Management Course
Our Diploma of Business Management specialising in Event Management teaches you everything you need to know about producing, managing and marketing events. You’ll study practical subjects that teach you how to coordinate an event, assess risk and profitability, and develop an event concept from start to finish.
Get real-world experience
We’re big on bringing the working world into the classroom in event management courses at our Sydney campus, as you’ll see with our Entrepreneur’s Project. Guided by a Sydney based events manager mentor, you’ll set up and run a real business while working in a team setting – an excellent way to gain true hands-on experience.
There’s no better way to put your study of event management to use than by practicing event design and concepts in a real industry environment. During the final trimester, you’ll take part in our internship placement program at an established company or business, meaning you’ll graduate with your own list of professional contacts. It’s also a great opportunity to apply all of the practical knowledge you’ve gained throughout the course.
It’s the most comprehensive way to become job-ready for the events industry within just one year, and it’s all right here at Macleay.
