UK: Former VP at Marriott International, Nicole Philips, has been named program director of the Glion Institute’s MSc in Real Estate, Finance, and Hotel Development.

Philips brings 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry around the world, including 16 years at Marriott International, where she eventually held the position of VP international hotel development planning. In this position, Phillips had responsibilities including scheduling of feasibility projects, training, preparing facility recommendations and financial projections, and more.

Holding an MBA in hospitality management from IMHI, she has experience working for HVS International in both London and Singapore, as well as other hotel operations worldwide.

Philips initially joined the Glion Institute of Higher Education in London in September 2018 as a lecturer. The program, which was launched two years ago, aims to prepare students for careers in international hotel development, asset management, real estate investment, and investment strategies and financing.

Philips said: “Through my time in industry I have seen so many real-life examples of how these roles and areas of expertise add enormous value to the sector and this is the perfect time to be pursuing a career in hotel development, investment and asset management. For prospective students considering our program, there is no other specialist hospitality degree with these key elements of the investment and asset management world, and it is exclusive to Glion’s London campus. I am delighted to be leading the program and supported by faculty industry experts. In the role I am personal tutor specifically to real estate students and also personally advise all our MSc students on career opportunities. Jobs are out there, and consultancies will always scan the market and pick up talent.”
