Degree in Tourism

240 credits - Felipe Moreno University College of Tourism

The Degree in Tourism aims to provide students with specific training in managing businesses and institutions that are part of the most important economic sector in the Balearic Islands: tourism. The training received by students combines both theoretical and practical elements, with a structure characterised mainly by a multi-disciplinary nature combining:

  • Main core training in tourism business management (business management systems for tourism enterprises, marketing techniques, quality management, strategic positioning, accounting, etc.) and the economics of tourism (measuring and assessing the economic impact of tourism, assessing the environmental impact of tourism, etc.).
  • Language training (English, French and/or German) specifically applied to the tourism sector: specific vocabulary for tourism businesses, presentation techniques, common expressions, etc.
  • Training in tourism law (analysing the specific legal framework of the tourism sector), the geography of tourism (land resource planning and management) and cultural heritage management.
  • The practical application of knowledge acquired on the degree programme through work experience at a renowned tourism business or institution, both on the islands and overseas, lasting around 4-5 months.
  • The Final Degree Project, which is the last stage of the Degree in Tourism, where students will use the knowledge they have acquired throughout the degree programme.
