Second edition - Academic year 2016-17
NEW: grants available to international students (see below)
The 'Master in Economics of Tourism: Monitoring and Evaluation' (METME) is a one-year international master's degree programme taught completely in English and organized by the Department of Applied Economics at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB).
High-quality training in academic and professional research
METME has been conceived as an advanced education program in the field of applied economics offering high-quality training in academic and professional research, providing analytical and quantitative tools to address today’s economic challenges to tourism economies. The programme rigorously integrates theoretical knowledge and its application to the economic problems commonly faced by those economies.
Monitoring and evaluation of projects and policies in tourism economies
METME aims to train specialists in economic analysis applied to the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of projects and policies in the context of tourism economies. M&E is a powerful public management tool that can be used to improve the way governments and organizations achieve results. The master will help students to develop skills and competences in M&E to improve the competiveness and sustainability of tourism economies. Graduates will acquire knowledge of cutting-edge techniques in M&E by choosing one of the two available specializations: (i) Monitoring techniques applied to tourism or (ii) Evaluation techniques applied to tourism.
Final master's project, practical placements (internship) and future career prospects
Students must produce a dissertation (Final master's project) in the last term of the master where they will apply the learned skills to a project of their choice. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to perform practical placements (internship) in a public or private institution (approximately 150 hours), worth 6 ECTS (equivalent to two elective courses). Our graduates are expected to go on taking a PhD, working at research institutes or pursuing careers in the public or private sectors.
