The Master of Event Management is designed to develop high-level management skills and knowledge sufficient to equip students for management positions in the broad and multifaceted event industry. This course seeks to build professional competence in the area of event management, along with an applied understanding of processes and practices linked to general business management. With this intent in mind, the course includes subjects that seek to develop an understanding of the event creation, planning and delivery process and general business subjects that serve to build an appreciation of organisational leadership and management.

Graduates of this program can pursue careers in such areas as: festival management, concert and theatrical event management, sport event management, conference and meeting management, hotel/resort/cruise ship event coordination, event marketing, venue management, exhibition management, corporate event management, event risk management, event theming and design.
