Projecting success

Sarah Oleksiuk's determination to become a successful project manager is winning her awards and admiration.


"After three years working as a building designer, I decided I wanted to see the result of my hard work and manage those projects through to completion. I enrolled in the Master of Project Management at VU in order to fulfil this aspiration. I also completed my MBA at VU which provided a solid foundation in general business management.

Three years running, I was awarded the outstanding student of the year, and in my third year, I also received the Australian Institute of Project Management's Certificate of Recognition for Academic Performance.

I have worked as a project manager across various sectors, and was lucky enough to participate in an accelerated development program with my previous employer, SavillsPM. The experience obtained opened opportunities where I was fortunate enough to secure a project manager role with Aurecon, a top global multidiscipline engineering and advisory consultancy firm."
