The Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa is pleased to announce a $50,000 contribution from Lockheed Martin Canada Inc. to develop curriculum for proposed new post-graduate programs of study in Complex Program Leadership and Strategic Procurement. 

As an institution located in the heart of Canada’s capital city, the Telfer School’s Centre for Executive Leadership is uniquely positioned to fulfill the executive training needs of the government and its partners. Educating leaders of complex projects and procurement, as with all programs at the Telfer School, will emphasize experiential learning and rely on engagement with the public and private sectors.

The Telfer School’s Assistant Dean, External Relations Alain Doucet noted, “We are grateful to Lockheed Martin Canada for their commitment to these new programs of study. Their support will allow us to fulfil a great need to develop made-in-Canada expertise in this area.”

"We're pleased to form this partnership with the University of Ottawa and make a significant contribution to an education system that will address issues related to program management and related procurement issues," said Charles Bouchard, Chief Executive of Lockheed Martin Canada.  "This is an investment in our country that is given on behalf of the 850 men and women that work from coast to coast for Lockheed Martin Canada."

The programs are pending approval by the University of Ottawa Institutional Quality Assurance Process and by the Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance.
