Abstract: As stated in the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 5, different regulations and academic literature, the education of managers in a gender perspective is a necessity and a requirement to achieve organizations that eliminate invisible male norms and transform traditional gender relations. Thus, one of the challenges facing current's society is to train and educate future executives on the relevance of gender equality in future organizational structures. In this sense, this article aims to analyze the design of the subjects and the assimilation of content among university students of the Bachelor's Degree in Tourism and the Bachelor's Degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management in Catalonia regarding the implementation of institutional policies and private initiatives on gender equality. To do this, a review of the teaching plans of the different public and private universities is carried out and data about the knowledge of the students is collected through a dichotomous questionnaire. The results indicate that, despite the gender perspective is slowly being incorporated into university teaching of degrees in tourism, there is still a long way to go. Consequently, the knowledge of the student community about this subject is still negligible.
