Academic Requirements

The formal requirement for admission to the Master in International Tourism is a Bachelor’s degree in Economics, Business Administration, Communication Sciences, Political Science and International Relations, Transportation Science, Social Sciences, Language and Literature, Tourism, or other related fields, granted by a recognised university.

To guarantee the optimal ratio between learners and the Master in International Tourism faculty, the places offered are limited. Therefore, selection can be effected on the basis of academic results. Admissions will be treated on a case by case basis.

For Bachelor degrees obtained in Switzerland, USI accepts Bachelor degrees from recognised Swiss Higher Education Institutions (Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences) listed by Swissuniversities. The full, up-to-date list is available here: Swissuniversities.

Master in International Tourism candidates usually receive the outcome of their application within 10 working days from the day they submitted their application.

 

Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree granted by a recognised University of Applied Sciences – in Switzerland the so-called ’Fachhochschule’ (FH) – may be admitted.

In this case, candidates need to obtain 30 additional ECTS during the Master in International Tourism in elective courses that they can freely choose from all Master level courses in English offered at USI.
