The Voyage Global Leadership Development Program

Voyage: Training tomorrow’s leaders today
Marriott International welcomes recent university graduates to experience the career development adventure of a lifetime and a world of leadership opportunities. Our global leadership development program, Voyage, propels participants on a mentored, learning-inspired journey to prepare you for a successful career. Voyage is a full-time, paid development program. As an associate and trainee, you’ll build upon the skills you developed in school by participating in real world assignments.

About the journey
Voyage is an elite, award-winning program that provides a combination of hands-on, discipline-specific training and a leadership-focused curriculum. The program takes place at a Marriott International managed hotel, not a classroom, and is offered in 50+ countries. Voyage is available in the following disciplines:

•  Culinary

When you join Voyage, you gain access to Marriott’s senior leaders and coaches and have many opportunities to stand out. You’ll participate in mini-rotations across the disciplines to learn firsthand how to manage various hotel functions and to connect with current and former Voyage participants through our social collaboration tools. Each individual’s Voyage journey is unique, spanning 12 months dependent upon your career interests, passions, goals, and location. You’ll immediately be immersed in our rich culture and portfolio of global brands to learn how Marriott sets the standard of industry excellence.

The experience you’ll gain
Voyage participants learn by doing! You’ll be fully immersed in the day-to-day operations of a hotel.  If accepted into this elite program, you will:

• Cultivate customer relationships

• Be a champion for innovation within the organization

• Get exposure to managing projects & people

• Improve processes & pitch new initiatives through your Voyage project

• Take on special projects that will draw upon all your training

Destination: Marriott leadership
You’ll participate in management meetings and collaborate with Voyage participants worldwide. You’ll be expected to solve challenges, as well as offer ideas and innovative solutions. You will also have an opportunity to provide feedback on your curriculum and have an impact on future Voyage hires’ experiences. After graduation, you’ll be well-prepared to pursue your passion and take on new challenges. Many program graduates are ready to step into a Marriott supervisory or entry-level management role right away, because the program has provided a foundation for future leadership.
