Aims: The main goal will be the research development and knowledge transfer in the fields of International Economics and Tourism. It is intended that students acquire a training comprising a set of abilities and skills necessary to develop quality research. The doctoral studies will grant, as a minimum, the acquisition by the doctoral student of the basic competencies listed in the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education (MECES), namely: systematic understanding of a field of study of legal sciences, and mastery of its research methods and skills; ability to conceive, design or create, implement and adapt a substantial process of research or creation; ability to make a critic and assessment analysis, synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as communication with the academic and scientific community and society in general about their fields of knowledge; and ability to promote, within academic and professional contexts, scientific, technological, social, artistic or cultural advancement 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.
