Business and Territorial Competitiveness, Innovation and Sustainability

Overview

Programme description

Introduction

The PhD degree programme in Business and Territorial Competitiveness, Innovation and Sustainability is set within the “Aristos Campus Mundus 2015" framework. This initiative is the result of the strategic aggregation of three socially oriented universities (the University of Deusto, Comillas Pontifical University and Ramon Llull University). Furthermore, it has established an advanced strategic cooperation agreement with Georgetown University, Boston College and Fordham University.

Number of places on the programme:

•Bilbao: 4
•San Sebastian: 8

Programme objectives

The PhD degree programme in Business and Territorial Competitiveness, Innovation and Sustainability provides insight into the different factors that affect the competitiveness of companies and territories with a view to contributing to the economic and social development of the world we live in. Particular emphasis is placed on innovation as an essential factor for competitiveness and on sustainability as a key element to guarantee the well-being of future generations. With these objectives in mind, the programme delivers a sound rigorous background in research methodology.
The search for better solutions to organise the competitiveness of companies and territories demands not only financial resources but above all, research and innovation capacities. Furthermore, it calls for proper management of said research and innovation that enables financial resources to be effectively translated as innovations that underpin sustainable competitiveness.
