Leadership Development Program at Lockheed Martin

Leadership Development Program


This three-year training program is an exciting avenue for enthusiastic, strategic thinking early-career individuals to gain experience and expertise in the world of finance and business operations.

Program Details

Immersed in the inner workings of the world's leading technology contractor, you'll develop the leadership skills to put you on the fast track to leadership opportunities through three annual rotations, during which you'll benefit from exposure to and mentorship from Lockheed Martin executives, and ample learning and training opportunities. Training includes three in-house courses:

  • Government Finance
  • Full Spectrum Leadership
  • Case Study

During the program, you'll lead and work with a dynamic team on real-world projects that directly affect the business, such as program finance, estimating, contracts, audit, overhead and financial planning, and analysis. You'll have the opportunity to interface with our corporate finance executives at one of our off-site Finance Business Seminars. And the program includes two off-site leadership development conferences where you'll network with professionals and LDP peers from disciplines across the organization, while building teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills.

We also support and encourage our participants to continue their education, and provide tuition reimbursement to help you complete your master's degree.

Who can participate?

Potential candidates may apply for the FLDP after one year of employment at Lockheed Martin. While most program participants have a degree in accounting, finance, business administration or economics, the program is open to other majors as well.

In addition to being a team player with excellent communication, problem-solving and analytic skills, ideal candidates should have a strong work ethic, demonstrate leadership potential, and a track record of academic achievements and professional performance, if applicable.
