Making the move to management

After traveling from Hong Kong to complete a VU bachelor degree, Sally Cheung has returned for industry-relevant postgraduate study to take her career higher.

"I’ve chosen VU to undertake three courses because of the knowledge I’ve found I gained from classes and the networks I’ve been able to build with people from many different backgrounds. VU also offers a lot of support to international students who have different needs.

When completing my bachelor degree, I undertook an exchange program to Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK. When I graduated, I gained employment with the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, where I was responsible for organising sport events and assisting athletes in their retirement planning. 

After four years in that role, I decided to return to VU for postgraduate studies. My goal is to advance to management roles and I found that the subjects offered in the Master of Communications were practical and matched the real working environment of my industry. The lecturers are passionate and very open-minded. They are all professional in their field and always share their experience in class."
