Bachelor of Science HES-SO in Tourism

The Tourism Degree Course is part of the HES-SO, the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland. The three-year course of studies leads to a Bachelor of Science HES-SO in Tourism Management. The degree program is accredited by the Swiss federal government, and prepares graduates to take on positions of responsibility in the tourism industry. 


Our curriculum complies with the Bologna standards which have created a dynamic and competitive European study space. We encourage student mobility, because we are convinced that mobile students have a better chance to find high level jobs in tourism. 

The curriculum covers 6 semesters, and is composed of modules. The Tourism Degree Course applies the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credit system. ECTS credits facilitate the mutual recognition of completed modules among institutions.
