Tutorial Plan

The supervisor is ultimately responsible for the direction of the candidate in research activities leading to the completion of the PhD, consistency and adequacy of the training, the impact and novelty in the subject field of the dissertation and guidance in planning and its relevance, if any, to other projects and activities where the doctoral student enrolls.

The academic committee of the Doctoral Programme will assign a tutor to the applicant (once he or she is admitted). The tutor will be a doctor with accredited research experience and involved in the doctoral programme. Within six months from the first enrolment, the academic committee of the doctorate will assign to every student a thesis supervisor, which may or may not be the same as the tutor.

The direction and supervision of training activities and the doctoral thesis conform the
" Procedures for doctorates of UIB (RD99/2011) "

General Objectives

The interest of this doctoral program is justified by:

  1. Professional interest, since tourism has become an economic activity, social and territorial cohesion of enormous significance. Also because the rapid changes occurring in the international tourism sector must be adapted to new strategies and expectations International tourism is based not only on the strength of the classic destinations, but also in the potential of the new destinations, especially in Southeast Asia and in the Americas. This requires skilled professionals to meet the challenges of tourism in the XXI century.
  2. Fortress tourism research at the UIB and the University of Girona. UIB and the University of Girona, along with the CSIC and ICRA, constitute the Campus Euro-Mediterranean Tourism and Water. These two universities are two of the main Spanish research and training in tourism, and only in 2011, in the specific field of tourism, both universities participated in nine international R + D + i and 50 national projects, and research contracts with companies and institutions worth 700,000 euros
  3. Guarantee program via external references. Large foreign universities, as British (Oxford, Newcastle, Exeter and Surrey) or U.S. (Stanford, Washington, or Calgary) have doctorates in tourism and the existence of 36 journals indexed on topic Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism demonstrate the great interest to universal level research and training in tourism.
