Student profile Event management student Phoebe James

Phoebe James

Bachelor of Commerce (Event Management)

“I have learnt a lot throughout my degree which has inspired and helped push me in the right direction in what I would like to pursue after I finish my degree. However, the best part of my degree has been meeting a bunch of like-minded students with a range of different interests and ideas which has opened me up to many opportunities.

"With studying event management, we had the opportunity to help plan a business networking event, which allowed us to liaise as students with business professionals. This was a great way to get a head start in an organisation we would love to work for one day.”
