Congratulations to Laurie Nicol, general manager of Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel. She is among the first group of just 12 hotel industry leaders from across the globe to graduate from the exclusive Executive Masters in Hospitality and Tourism course. The highly sought-after qualification is offered through The International Leadership School – a partnership between three of the world’s leading universities, Ivy League Cornell University in New York; Ecole Hôtelièr de Lausanne in Switzerland, recognised as the world’s top hospitality management school; and Scotland’s Strathclyde University, Glasgow.
Other famous alumni who have graduated from the universities include former presidents of Taiwan and Cuba, the inventors of the Atkins Diet and the Pacemaker as well as the founder of global retail chains Burger King and Staples.
Laurie Nicol said, “It is an incredible honour to stand alongside some of the world’s most respected and high-ranking leaders in the hospitality industry to receive this fantastic qualification.”
