This degree programme provides students with a complete and in-depth understanding of economic issues through a range of analytical tools in the economic, business, legal and quantitative fields, paying particular attention to their international dimension. The two curricula are: Foreign Trade and Tourism Economics.

In the Foreign Trade Curriculum, students will be provided with useful and necessary skills to allow them to manage the complexity of import-export relations in business, value investments in foreign markets and organise production processes on an international scale.

In the Tourism Economics curriculum, students will acquire the necessary skills to be able to correctly interpret trends in global tourism markets, understand the complexity and the transversality of the tourism industry and know how to set up a development plan correctly for an organisation that operates in the tourism sector (private or public) or in a touristic destination.

The course includes an internship for personal development, preferably abroad at an agreed upon business or institution.

 

 

This First Cycle Degree Programme provides students with an in-depth grounding in economic and international trade issues.

This Degree Programme also offers various educational activities concerning foreign languages and a compulsory internship abroad with scholarships at companies and institutes having special agreements with the university.
