The Tourism and Hotel Management program offered at Istanbul Bilgi University is designed to offer a Bachelor’s degree upon successful completion of 240 ECTS courses throughout a four-year curriculum. Those aiming for an exchange term or year, can study abroad at our partner institutions in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Poland, Latvia, Spain, Portugal and Bulgaria through the Laureate Network and the Swiss Mobility and Erasmus+ programs.

The language of instruction is English, and a second foreign language teaching is also provided. The core courses follow a sequence from the macro foundations of business administration towards the specializations of tourism and hotel management. Departmental electives are tailored to cover at least one tourism and one hospitality subject for each term during the freshman to senior years. Practical training is highly emphasized through applied courses and two internship periods in the sophomore and junior years, finalized with an industrial placement in the last academic term.
