La Trobe University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00115M

La Trobe offers a combination of practical skills and business theory, teaching students to make effective project management decisions. This degree covers management, marketing, economics, business law, accounting and finance, plus specialised event management studies that give you the skills you need to plan and organise festivals and community events. This course also develops your knowledge of sustainability issues and how they affect the organisation of community events. We place a particular focus on the development of entrepreneurship, which is vital for the promotion and success of professional, sporting, cultural and community events. Students have the chance to organise and evaluate student-led events on and off campus, and work with La Trobe's industry partners throughout their degree. Nine elective subjects allow students to complete a second major in a business discipline such as marketing, sport management or international business, a language, an international student exchange, or any other eight-subject major offered at the University. Alternatively, students may complete one or two four-subject minors such as social media or marketing, or a selection of individual elective subjects, including an international study tour or intern subjects. La Trobe's unique industry Professors of Practice work within this course to improve course curriculum, student learning experience, and engage with industry and business.


Students must complete at least 360 credit points. At least 270 of these must be in subjects offered by the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law. In first year, students take four business foundation subjects, two subjects specific to the event management disciplinary core and two elective subjects. The four business foundation subjects, Business Foundations, Accounting and Finance for Business, Business Economics, and Business Analytics, will introduce key business disciplines and work-ready skills. These skills will be further enhanced in second and third year with a subject in Sustainability and a capstone subject in Entrepreneurship, respectively. In addition to these common core subjects you will complete eight core subjects in event management over the three years of the degree. This flexible degree also allows students to take an additional eight-subject major, a couple of four-subject minors, or a wide range of elective subjects.
