Top executives coach master’s students on real-world communication skills

Rebecca Weintraub, director of the Master of Communication Management (MCG) program, partners with top executives from infrastructure giant AECOM to provide graduate students in her strategic corporate communication course with a unique glimpse into how communication drives an organization’s objectives and goals. AECOM’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, Heather Rim (MA, MCG, ’03), took this same class while earning her master’s degree and has maintained a close relationship with Weintraub and USC Annenberg since graduating. Together, they paired the various areas covered in Weintraub’s course with experts from across AECOM to provide a real-world perspective on delivering strategic communication programs that meet client expectations.
