Marriott International Maldives, MNU Launches LIVE FULLY Activation

Marriott International Maldives has launched the Live Fully activation as a collaboration with Maldives National University (MNU).

According to Marriot International, the objective of this collaboration is to nurture and create the future talent pipeline for Leadership roles focused on the local talents within the company.

The key aim of this event was to highlight growth opportunities and career adventure for the young minds within Marriott International, and to inspire students to reflect on their career journeys, what it means to live fully with Marriott International, and how to take the next step in growing their career to who they want to become.

The event began with a Panel discussion between the Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism studies, Maldives National University led by Ms. Zeenath Solih and Marriott International representatives. The idea was to seek common collaborative grounds to attract, train and retain the local talent graduating from MNU.

The next was an interactive and engaging session between the students and Marriott International team, with the focus on presenting the growth opportunities offered by seven resorts to the students.  Around 50 students from MNU participated in this event.

The event also focused on Marriotternship – the Hotel Internship Program offered by Marriott International to the students. The highly structured and planned program spans over a period of six months, providing on-the-job exposure in all Operations and Support departments and presenting an opportunity to work and learn alongside the hospitality experts in Maldives.

The next segment was about Voyage – the Global Leadership Development Program spanning over a period of 18 months to help create the future leaders. Voyage helps build on the current strengths of high potential students providing them continuous guidance and learning opportunities thereby creating a Talent pool of future Supervisory and Mid Management level leaders.

Although the Voyage program is currently offered by The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands and Le Méridien Maldives Resort and Spa, all of Marriot International’s resorts in Maldives aim to host the Voyage Program in the future. All seven resorts also provided direct hiring opportunities for the students present for the event.

Marriott International’s representatives expressed their wishes to keep this momentum alive and collaborate on many such development opportunities with Maldives National University. Students interested in the opportunity can find further information about in on OR
