Study at VU

Former cricketer building on his strengths

A cricketer who found his calling for sport through undergraduate study at VU has returned to further his career.

"In 2005, while working in construction, I realised that sport was my passion. I enrolled at VU because VU is regarded by many industry professionals as the best sports university in Australia. I have never looked backed.

I now work for Northern Territory Cricket as Club and Cricket Operations Officer, managing the development and operations of Club Cricket, Coach Education and High Performance cricket programs across the NT.

I chose the Master of Sport Business and Integrity because it has more relevance to the sports industry in a practical sense than any other course I have undertaken. Undertaking the course has refocused my career aspirations and made me work harder in my current role at NT Cricket.

Long-term, my goal is to run my own sports consultancy business that provides sports management and athlete development solutions for administrators and coaches across multiple codes, around  Australia and internationally.”
