Event managers are responsible for developing, organising and promoting events such as exhibitions, festivals, conferences, product launches and fundraisers.

In this specialisation you will explore the significance of events in society. You will study event planning, management of staff, stakeholders and resources, learn about risk management and consider the environmental, social and economic impact of events and festivals.

You’ll also learn about managing operations, in which you will link event management to business strategy, performance outcomes, competitiveness and sustainability.

It is an ideal complement to the Tourism and Hospitality, and Fashion Design majors.

An event management qualification can create opportunities for employment at the core of business, leisure, sporting and cultural activities in many countries.

Why study

  • You can undertake an internship to help organise a real event, such as the Chevron City to Surf marathon, the Cancer Council Relay for Life or the Perth Royal Show.
  • Curtin Explore provides opportunities for you to work with them to plan and stage events on campus.

Advanced standing

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
