Through the Master of Sport Business and Integrity, Lorcan Mathews is working with the next generation of local footballers as Melbourne Victory Academy’s U15 Team Manager.
Lorcan works alongside Academy Director Paulo Cardoso, who discovered and oversaw the early development of his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo.
"For me, VU is the benchmark in combining elite sport facilities and opportunities for students.
Every unit is industry related, which makes all my projects hugely enjoyable. Through my masters degree, I’m gaining an unparalleled view into the strategies that sporting organisations, bodies and clubs use to achieve success.
Having a mentor to guide me towards new opportunities and job possibilities is invaluable.
I truly feel at home at VU, and even more so now that my dream job feels within reach.
I’m so thankful for the partnership between Victoria University and Melbourne Victory Football Club. I've been a Melbourne Victory boy since day one, their first game, so for me, this is a dream come true.”
