The Master in Economics of Tourism: Monitoring and Evaluation (METME) is an advanced education program aimed at training specialists in economic analysis applied to the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of projects and polices in the context of tourism economies. The master provides analytical and quantitative tools on M&E, integrating theoretical knowledge and its application to real economic problems, to address today’s economic challenges faced by economies highly specialized on tourism. 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.
- Monitoring is the systematic collection of data on specified indicators to identify the changes taking place in a system (destination, sector, activity, firm, etc.) during a certain period of time that, usually, matches that of the implementation of a project, program or policy. Monitoring provides managers and stakeholders with indications of the extent of progress and achievement of objectives in the use of allocated funds.
- Evaluation is the systematic and objective assessment of the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of a project, program or policy in a given system (destination, sector, activity, firm, etc.). Evaluation attempts to measure the economic impact of the project to determine the relevance and fulfilment of its objectives. An evaluation should provide credible and useful information, enabling the incorporation of lessons learned into the decision-making process.
