Completing the Diploma of Sport Development in 2015 became the deciding factor in Laura D’Aloia’s career in sport management.
“I had been tossing up between studying exercise science or sport management. Ultimately, the course I completed at VU Polytechnic was the deciding factor on the career path I have taken.
While studying for my diploma I got the opportunity to complete a work placement at Western Jets as a trainer. This placement helped me to decide that I wanted to pursue a career in the management and administration side of sport rather than the scientific.
I really enjoyed the hands-on learning experiences at VU Polytechnic and would wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone who is still making a decision on their career path.
Getting my diploma then opened up the opportunity for me to study the Bachelor of Sport Management and Bachelor of Business (Marketing) at VU.
I graduated from VU with my undergraduate degree in mid-2019 and I’m now working as a Membership Supervisor at Melbourne Victory Football Club. My long-term goal is to complete an MBA.”
