Tourism is one of the pillars on which the Spanish economy is based. Currently, Spain is the third world country in reception of international tourists, with 75.3 million arrivals representing 11.1% of our GDP. This upward trend is supported by the creation of tourism products and the emergence of new destinations, which make tourism a multidisciplinary sector and with numerous job opportunities. We speak of a leading, modern and dynamic sector, which demands professionals with a specific and differentiated tourism training.

To do this, Nebrija University offers students an Bachelor Degree in Tourism, which prepares students to enter the labor market through comprehensive training, based on a specialized curriculum, adapted to the needs of the tourism sector and reinforced by extra-academic activities such as conferences, discussion days and visits to companies and institutions that, complemented by professional internships in the most competitive tourism companies, provide a comprehensive theoretical and practical education.

In addition, the Department of Tourism participates actively in the Spain Tourism Table, chaired by Abel Matutes, president of Palladium Hotel Group and former Minister of Foreign Affairs.
