Double Degree in Business Administration and Tourism

312 credits - Faculty of Tourism

The Faculties of Economics and Business, and Tourism intend to offer a double degree in Business Administration and Tourism so that students are able to attain both degrees in a reasonable length of time .

The synergies between both degrees have become clear in recent years, where it has become usual for students from one course to take subjects from the other. The current accreditation grids forthe two degrees have enabled an attractive learning proposal to be designed for students at the university. In this sense, the UIB needs to ensure that these students attain the skills inherent to each of the two programmes. This learning pathway does not represent a new degree or syllabus and, therefore, is not subject to technical assessment by an external agency or assessment body from the Council of Universities. Indeed, it represents internal organisation at the university to provide facilities for students to obtain two separate degrees .

The UIB has designed a curricular pathway structured into 5 courses, with between 60 and 66 credits per course, and a total of 306 credits. An independent group of 45 students will be created to take this initiative with admission criteria based on the quality of their academic transcript. This will respond to the ever greater demand from students who apply for one of the two degree courses as a first and second option. Due to the limited numbers, demand for the courses cannot currently be met .

In turn, the proposal is in line with the requirements of the professional sphere on the islands, with their high number of tourism enterprises and institutions, and the drive towards sustainable tourism as well as the internationalisation of the university included in its strategic focal points. In this way, the double degree is intended to be multilingual, with a particular emphasis on English in which some subjects will be taught .

International Pathway

Although it depends on the teaching ability of departments to teach subjects in English, the intention is for at least 48 subject credits to be taught in English, in addition to language courses themselves. In this way, students will be able to attain the International Curriculum Pathway. The requirements to do this are as follows:

  1. Passing a minimum of 30 credits for subjects taught in English.
  2. Meeting at least one of the following criteria:
    1. A one-year stay at a university overseas studying in a foreign language and passing 48 credits.
    2. A one-semester stay at an overseas university studying in a foreign language and passing 24 credits, as well as passing a further 24 credits in subjects taught in English on the degree course.
  3. Writing your Final Degree Project in English.
  4. Doing Practicum I and Practicum II with an intensive use of a foreign language or taking an additional 18 credits in a degree course taught in English.

In any event, the number of credits and subjects taken in English will be shown on the European Diploma Supplement, as well as any stays overseas, for students who do not meet all the necessary criteria to attain the 'International Curriculum Pathway'.
