Lockheed is working with the BB&T Center for Ethical Business Leadership, a unit of UNG’s Mike Cottrell College of Business.
“This is an avenue for Lockheed Martin to share their best practices around ethics and values,” said Rose Procter, director for the BB&T Center for Ethical Business Leadership.
“Lockheed Martin has great expertise on prepping our next-generation leaders, in both college and high school, on how to voice their values and to work through real-life scenarios. This is one of the reasons they are a leader in their industry.”
Other institutions selected for the partnership were California Polytechnic State University, California State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Montgomery College, and University of Maryland.
