In second year students gain hands-on experience in using front-of-house and travel management booking systems, and participate in a hotel management computer simulation towards the end of the course. Students also have the opportunity to take a second major in event management or a second language. They can also gain credit while studying overseas through La Trobe's network of partner universities, which includes top business schools such as the University of Innsbruck and the Berlin School of Economics. 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.
