"The Ascent Graduate Journey gave me the chance to fully understand the world of hospitality. The opportunity to spearhead various projects and attend management meetings has made me appreciate the key role of each team member in ensuring that all hotel operations run smoothly. With the hospitality industry being so broad, you need people that support you and ensure that you do not sway in the wrong direction. If you are a goal-driven and passionate hospitality enthusiast who is not afraid to get out of their comfort zone, then this programme is for you!"

“My vision was always to be the person revolutionising the hospitality industry by delivering world-class service at all times while respecting the local culture and people. I joined the Ascent Graduate Journey because it offers the framework and platform to achieve that specific goal. While in the programme, I had the privilege to be coached by senior mentors as well as explore diverse cultures. From the desert of Abu Dhabi to the blue lagoon of Portugal, I am now the Assistant Front Office Manager at the breathtaking Al Baleed Resort Salalah in Oman”

"Two years back, I joined Minor Hotels as a Front Desk Agent in Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels By Tivoli in Doha. I was selected for the Ascent Graduate Journey, which enabled me to grow my career at a faster pace. In this journey I had the opportunity to get more experience and knowledge in various departments where I hadn’t had the chance to work before, and I learned the responsibilities and pressures other departments experience. The Programme gave me a life-changing opportunity to grow myself and develop my career under the supervision of professionals and experienced department heads. Minor Hotels changed my life and my way of thinking about my goals. What are you waiting for? Come and join us."
