Aims: The aim is the development of research and knowledge transfer in the field of International Economics and Tourism. The doctoral studies shall guarantee the acquisition of the basic competences established in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education: the systematic understanding of the field of study and the mastery of its research methods and skills; the ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research or creation; the ability to make critical and assessment analysis; synthesise new and complex ideas; ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general about this field of knowledge; ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advances in a knowledge-based society.


Some of the areas of greatest scientific relevance in the field of economics are those concerning international relations and tourism. The more open economies are, the more mature they are, both from the point of view of true flows (goods, services and people) and financial flows (means of payment and reservation). Research in areas such as international trade, tourism, trade policy, financial integration, international marketing of the company, internationalisation strategy, international transport and logistics, international means of payment and financing, among other more specific lines on integration processes which take Europe Union as a frame of reference, constitutes a broad research area of particular relevance in the context of European integration which has traditionally had a deficit in university studies to be met with the doctoral programme presented.
