Ananda Costa, a recent graduate with a degree in public relations and a New Media certificate from Grady College, is one of the top students selected for Lockheed Martin’s two-year rotational Communication Leadership Development Program. Throughout her time in Grady College, Ananda gained valuable experience in her leadership roles including the co-director of AdPR Connection and director of outreach for TEDxUGA.
Lockheed Martin’s Communication Leadership Development Program is designed for selected individuals to gain experience and knowledge in corporate communications. Participants have the opportunity to be immersed in the world’s top advanced technology company. While completing this program, participants are encouraged to continue their education with provided tuition to obtain their master’s degree. Lockheed Martin hopes to mold future company leaders through this exclusive program.
“I am so honored to have been selected for Lockheed Martin’s Communications Leadership Development Program. Grady has a proud history of having several students participate in this prestigious initiative. In fact, I couldn’t have gone through the rigorous interview process without the encouragement of exceptional Grady professors, alumni and PRSSA. Having a strong support system of people who helped proof my application materials and provide me with program insights gave me an edge throughout the application process. I am so grateful to Grady and can’t wait to begin my Lockheed journey working with the Space team in Denver soon,” said Ananda.
