Teachers of the Faculty of Economics, Business, and Tourism of the ULPGC have a clear commitment to research and innovation. Undoubtedly, the most suitable way to promote the interrelation between University researchers and society is to carry out knowledge transfer projects for companies and public administrations. In this sense, in the Faculty of Economics, Business, and Tourism, numerous recognized research projects with the Public Administration and private companies allow many professors to conduct their research efficiently.

Today, there are fourteen research groups on the faculty where practically most of the teaching and research staff working there participate. This makes it possible to carry out quality research that is internationally recognized, which translates into the publication of more than one hundred articles in impact scientific journals (JCR) per year.

The quality of the research carried out by the faculty is evident in the data published in the Shanghai Ranking by subject. In particular, in the Tourism and Economy of the ULPGC, they appear in very high positions. Specifically, in the area of Tourism, our faculty is the first in Spain and is in position thirty-one in the world. In contrast, in the area of Economics (finance, transport, actuarial statistics, health economics, marketing, etc. ), we appear in the eleventh position. In other international Rankings, both areas appear with similar figures.

The doctoral degree represents any student’s highest academic distinction in their training. It authorizes the person who holds it to teach, do university research, and carry out professional activities that require it. The doctorate in Tourism, Economics, and Management, offered jointly by the Faculty of Economics, Business, and Tourism with the University Institute of Tourism and Sustainable Economic Development of the ULPGC, trains researchers who intend to achieve training in the areas of tourism, economics, and management. This training will help develop either an academic or a professional path. Every year fifteen places are offered to complete the doctoral thesis full-time (three years) and part-time (five years).
