Overview

The Bachelor of Management provides integrated exposure to the structure, function, and operation of the socio-culturally dynamic entertainment and experience industries, with a special focus on the visitor and audience economies of tourism, events, sport business, and the digital creative sector. Featuring a strong emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship, this course provides a compelling combination of conceptual rigour and practical knowledge, which includes opportunities for internships with industry partners and overseas exchange placements with university partners. From an ethical standpoint, students are also prompted to think through social responsibilities for today’s industry; in addition to the creation of socio-economic value in the entertainment and experience sectors, there are also questions to consider around equity and sustainability in respect of the design and supply of products and services.
