Manager in Training Programme

MIT Landing

The future growth and success of Four Seasons depends on our ability to attract and retain the brightest and best college and university graduates. While students can pursue a career with us in a variety of ways, we regularly conduct on-campus interviews at hospitality institutions around the world.

The Manager in Training (MIT) programme at Four Seasons is designed to give participants the tools they need to accelerate their careers and succeed as future leaders. In addition to operational exposure and training, MITs will be exposed to valuable management experiences and project work, allocated a buddy and mentor, and provided with feedback throughout the program.

The MIT Programme is customised to the region it operates in. Please click here to learn more.
