The Bachelor of Management Bachelor of International Studies (Honours) is an exit-point for students who have completed the International Honours pathway within the Bachelor of Management Bachelor of International Studies (C10343).

In the fourth year of the combined degree, International Honours students spend an academic year studying in the local language at a university in the country of their major and also complete an honours level research project under the supervision of a relevant UTS academic.

Entry to the International Honours pathway is dependent on students maintaining a credit average (or higher) in both their International Studies and professional degree in their first three years of study, and on the availability of placements in particular majors.

This combined degree enables students to travel and study abroad for the equivalent of two semesters, located with one of UTS’s partner universities. It is therefore distinctive in offering both tertiary education and life experience in two countries. The course develops deep knowledge of the entertainment and experience industries while combining direct exposure to their application in different cultures and economies.

Course aims

Graduates emerge with the collaborative, leadership, business design, and innovation skills required to successfully contribute to contemporary organisations in entertainment and experience sectors, and are provided with an opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of another culture and language.

Career options

Career options include event management, festival management, event coordination, event planning, destination management, destination marketing, conference organiser, meetings planner, business event manager, wedding planner, entertainment venue management, social media management, event marketing, sport marketing, sport management, sport venue management, sport event management, sports agent, sports administrator, player manager, sponsorship manager, and player relations manager, growth hacker, social media manager, business development manager, CEO/founder, advocacy manager, donor relations coordinator, fundraising manager, volunteer coordinator, community outreach coordinator. Career options are enhanced by international experience, making students more marketable to prospective employers.
