Student and alumni profiles

Ms Courtney Harris

Course of study:
Bachelor of Business (Event Management)

I’ve always loved running events and celebrations, and organising everything involved from catering to décor. I realised I could turn that passion into a career.

I first began my course majoring in Event Management. After completing a couple of Marketing subjects, I decided to enrol in a Marketing minor. In my second year of university, I applied for a short intensive exchange program at Michigan State University in America and I was accepted.

I’ve also volunteered at many local and regional events to gain experience. The Bendigo region is full of growing industries, and peers and lecturers are more than happy to help you find these opportunities and get involved.

La Trobe has broadened my opportunities and showed me different pathways that I could go down. It has also allowed me to study something I enjoy and has given me the skills to pursue a career doing what I love.
