Students benefit from professional partnerships

ECU's sponsorship-based partnerships with sports industry leaders, such as the West Coast Eagles and Perth Wildcats, offer our students unique opportunities to go behind the scenes, gain industry insights, network and see what career prospects might be available after they graduate.

Last year, Exercise & Sports Science and Business students attended an afternoon of workshops and activities with coaches and management teams from the West Coast Eagles (pictured). Partnerships like this help students learn how the knowledge and skills they’re gaining from their courses can be applied in the real world.

stories

  • "My 4 years at ECU were without a doubt some of the best of my life!"
    Joanne May
    Joanne MayECU Human Resources graduate

    Being a mature age student, I assumed that I wouldn't make many friends as that was just for the school leavers, but I have made friends for life with people of all ages and nationalities. These friendships made for the most positive experience. The lecturers and tutors were consistently supportive and it was clear they really wanted their students to succeed.

    I loved how ECU offered practical, work-ready learning methods, combined with the latest theory. I didn't realise how interactive the course would be, there were so many real life scenarios which made me feel much more comfortable about going out into the workforce.

    My greatest achievement was graduating with the School of Business and Law medal for 2018. It was an incredible honour that I got to share with my family, ECU friends and all my lecturers and tutors who encouraged me to aim as high as I could.

    Emmanuel KokorokoPhD Business (major in Management)

    I chose to do my doctorate here because I found the PhD in Business program at the School of Business and Law to be focused on conducting cutting edge and innovative research in areas that are relevant to the global community.

    The ECU facilities and services are more than enough for you to achieve your dreams. The great thing about the lecturers is that they give you the opportunity to explore and discover your interests whilst at the same time they guide you to pursue those interests.

    I found my supervisors to be very supportive and dedicated to supervising my research work, they create an enabling learning environment that help me to develop my research skills and competencies.

    To the new international current and prospective students especially the graduate research students, I can assure you that ECU is a great place to study.

    ECU carries this climate of a modern, world-class and ambitious institution. It looks like a place I can achieve my goals and aspirations. I have no doubt I came to the right place for my doctorates degree.

  • "When I think of my experience studying at the School of Business and Law at ECU, 'exhilarating' is the first thing that comes to mind"
    Gerald Chikwanda
    Gerald ChikwandaMaster of Professional Accounting graduate

    I came to this country by myself - I had no family here at all. When I moved to Australia, I felt that the reception I received when I arrived would set the tone for the duration of my studies. I found ECU, and Perth in general to be incredibly welcoming and I felt very comfortable.

    The academic staff were just awesome. Throughout my studies I found that the lecturers were friendly, open and very helpful. Interacting with my peers and my lecturers helped to build my personal confidence when I started my course. Through working with different teams I became engaged and very active, not only academically but professionally and socially.

    Throughout my studies, I was a CPA ambassador, which was a great opportunity to network with people in the industry whilst I was still studying. I have also been lucky enough to secure an accounting position since graduating. However, I feel the biggest achievement of this journey, were the smiles on my parents faces when I graduated. They really sacrificed a fair bit to get me here and I feel like I've done them proud.
