"ECU allowed me to follow my passion."
After completing my undergraduate degree it was time to look at options available to further my personal and professional development. I eventually decided to undertake post graduate study that offered both business and project management studies. I thought this field would be one I would really enjoy and also suit my skill set and personality.
The advantage of studying the Graduate certificate in project management at ECU is the combination of theory, practical and industry expertise in the course. The program really helped me apply what I learn in the classroom, to the workplace.
I was quite apprehensive at first returning to study at post graduate level and thought that I would struggle to adapt to an academic mindset, but by bringing more life experiences to my studies this time around I have really enjoyed the challenge and the results that the effort delivers.
The highlight of my experience at ECU is that it has reaffirmed my belief that I can continue to progress my career through academic studies.
