Designed specifically for the Sports/Entertainment/Event Management major, this program gives students the opportunity to examine event management in the context of sports and entertainment industries in Australia. Class lectures are augmented with a combination of site visits, guest lectures, student activities, and interactive assignments. This program is very mobile and involves a lot of walking. Be prepared for some strenuous exercise! Split between two cities, the first visit is Melbourne with several venues for world class sporting events and concerts such as the Melbourne Cricket Grounds and Rod Laver Arena. Then spend the second half of the program in Sydney to explore the event management industry in this vibrant, multi-cultural city, including visits to the world-famous Sydney Opera House and the 2000 Olympic grounds (ANZ Stadium). By exploring how a different country organizes Sports/Entertainment/Event management activities, students are better equipped to be highly effective SEE managers in a truly global society.  Ready to try some Vegemite?

I chose this program because Australia was on the top of my bucket list. I'm glad I did it because I learned a lot about people, this business, and myself.
