Double degree in Economics and Tourism

330 credits - Faculty of Economics and Business
  If you cannot find all of the information on the course that you are taking, check the old Double degree in Economics and Tourism study programme.

The Faculties of Economics and Business, and Tourism intend to offer a double degree in Economics 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 for the 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  a total of 324 credits. 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.
