Our Voyage Global Leadership Development Program is offered in more than 30 countries around the world for recent university graduates and offers a combination of practical hands-on experience and leadership training. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will have gained the confidence and skillset needed to embark on a successful career with Marriott International.
Voyage is 12-18 months, depending on the discipline and country. The program is designed to prepare participants for an entry-level management role after successful completion of the program. You’ll work with your Champion and Coach to find the right position for you.
Yes, Voyage is a full-time paid program, similar to other entry-level jobs. Compensation varies by country.
To participate in Voyage, permanent work authorization for that country is required. We do not provide work authorizations so please be sure you have authorization before you apply. The process is different in the Middle East and Africa – you should work with local authorities to acquire appropriate permits to work in a particular country. Our interviewers will be able to provide you with information on the right to work in any particular country during the screening process.
We do require permanent work authorization for the country in which you're interested. We'd recommend applying where you have work authorization. Once you've completed the program and are part of Marriott's network and growing your career with us, it can become easier to pursue transfer opportunities from within. If you are a student or recent graduate interested in working in the U.S., you may want to consider J-1 opportunities instead of Voyage.
