Nick Thomas on Hospitality Industry Trends and Hospitality Leadership Education
In the 10 years since DePaul’s School of Hospitality Leadership was established, the hospitality industry has seen dramatic changes. Advancements in technology are improving how hotels, restaurants and convention centers operate; new trends are reshaping the travel experience; and far-off destinations are more within reach. How does DePaul prepare students to enter this fast-growing sector? With a combination of classroom instruction led by professors with industry experience and hands-on training. In this episode, Nick Thomas, the school’s director, talks about how hospitality leadership educators are meeting the challenge of evolving with the industry—and shares what he’s learned from spending time on the opposite side of the world.
