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.

• Event Planning
• Food & Beverage Operations
• Human Resources
• Revenue Management
• Rooms Operations
• Sales & Marketing
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 12-18 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.
