The EHEA bachelor’s degree in Tourism at CETT-UB is a versatile training designed so that you can choose a specialization (minor) and an Specialization Intensification Itinerary (IIE). The specialization represents a group of subjects that attend to a specific market that will provide you with the knowledge, the methods, and the tools necessary to introduce yourself professionally into the job market. The IIE offers an additional option so that you can adapt your personal motivations.


Specializations in the EHEA bachelor’s degree in Tourism

The specializations are the same thing as the official minor that appears in the European bachelor’s degree certificate that you will receive after graduating at CETT-UB. They add expertise to your academic track record and bring the opportunity to interact with leading professionals and businesses in the sector. We offer three specializations:

Tourism Management.

This specialization provides you with the knowledge, techniques and instruments necessary for efficient Tourism planning and management, in addition to the development of the travel and market intermediation businesses. This focus implies achieving the skills for the creation of touristic experiences, their communication and marketing, and the sustainable management of tourism destinations and organizations on a social, cultural, economic and environmental level.

Hotel Management.

During the last two years of the bachelor’s degree, you will take specific business management and administration subjects of the specialist minor, in addition to subjects which cover the different areas of hotel management with an international and sustainable vision and which respond to the main challenges of the touristic accommodation sector.

Digital Tourism Business Management.*

This specialization provides with the skills necessary to deal with the management of digital businesses and the creation of touristic products and services based on the opportunities arising from the technical evolution and digitization of companies from the sector. Using entrepreneurship as the vehicular learning methodology, students will learn the main innovation instruments and processes, from both a theoretical and a practical viewpoint, through the application of these processes in real projects.

Specialization Intensification Itinerary (IIE)

CETT-UB offers different options to adapt the degree to your motivations, so as to shape their professional career profile. If you take one of these itineraries you’ll receive an expert diploma in the subject chosen, issued by CETT, accrediting the itinerary in addition to the minor, with an added value that will enhance your professional career.

Intensification oriented towards developing a specialization in Tourism.

This IIE is designed to grant a number of credits which you’ll be able to assign to shape your syllabus in a personalized manner, in accordance with your career interests and personal motivations.

Intensification oriented towards building an expertise in languages.

This itinerary is focused on the study of languages, a fundamental tool for communications in Tourism, so that you can learn a third and fourth language depending on your personal and professional interests (French, German, Italian, Chinese, Russian, and Spanish). The level of English achieved is equivalent to C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and for the rest of the languages the level will depend on the total number of credits taken.
