Program Description

School of Tourism

Today tourism in Chile and the world has experienced a strong growth, generating different types of activities ranging from outdoor and eco-tourism, working aboard a cruise, in the culinary and gastronomical sectors, or within airports and hotels, among others.

Duoc UC students will develop language skills in English and Portuguese, work with technological tools related to tourism, and experience the satisfaction of a “job well done” by seeing the smile of satisfied customers.

This degree has two programs that share the same curriculum but one is taught in Spanish and the other one is completely taught in English. Graduates from Tourism and Hospitality have the skills to work in the areas of management and administration, both locally and internationally, in various tourism businesses: hotels, bed & breakfasts, hostels, restaurants, cruises, convention centers, catering & events, tour operators, wholesalers and agencies, public administration and municipalities, tourist information, consulting, air transportation enterprises and car rentals. They are also capable of undertaking their own businesses and innovation projects for the industry.
