At the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences of the University of Oviedo the doctoral program has classrooms for the conducting of the classes and seminars corresponding to the period of training and research. These classrooms have natural light, heating and air-conditioning and are equipped with whiteboards, screens and video projectors. These classrooms have from 15 to 20 places, with adjustable furniture, used for teaching small groups, practical classes and seminars. The students also have three computer classrooms equipped with a network connection for the computers, so that they can share information analysis programs and analyse databases.

At the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences of the University of the Basque Country the doctoral program has 16 small classrooms for the classes and seminars corresponding to the training period and the different activities organized for the doctoral students (specialization courses, seminars, etc.), all with natural light, heating and air-conditioning and equipped with whiteboards, screens, computers, projectors, sound systems and internet. These classrooms have from 18 to 20 places, with adjustable furniture.

The doctoral program at the UPV/EHU also has an office with desks and computer equipment with WiFi wireless internet coverage for each of the students. The office also has a printer-fax and telephone.

At the University of Cantabria the doctoral program will be conducted on the premises of the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences, in the Department of Economics and in the Doctoral School.

The Doctoral School has classrooms for the teaching of the lessons and seminar rooms in the Transversal Training block.

The Economics Department, located in the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences, provides students with the necessary space to study and access the material resources necessary for conducting their research work.

Finally, at the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences of the UPV/EHU and the University of Cantabria there are video-conference classrooms which may also be used by the program, if deemed appropriate.

The University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) houses the Bilbao-LABEAN (Bilbao Laboratory of Experimental Analysis). This laboratory is equipped with the latest technology and contains 45 computers connected to the internet, to which another 5 can be added, as well as 4 servers located in a large control room. The aim of the laboratory is to research, by means of well-controlled experimentation, the decisions made, both individually and interactively, by human subjects and organizations.

The universities participating in the program have important libraries located on the campuses where the studies are conducted. Similarly, the research groups also have a large amount of literature available for the students, acquired as a result of the research projects which have been carried out in recent years. Finally, it should be mentioned that the universities have an important collection of electronic scientific journals which can be accessed via the Internet.

Some specific publications which are not electronically published or to which the university does not subscribe have a paper subscription provided by the groups. Finally, the universities have important scientific databases with electronic access. This means that access to the research resources of the program is excellent. More specifically, the students will have access to bibliographical resources provided by the Library of Legal and Social Sciences of the University of Oviedo. This means they are able to directly view all the available collections, including books and the large catalogue of periodicals subscribed to by the University. All the above is complemented by the access students will have, via internet, to electronic platforms of journals to which the University of Oviedo has access. These include, in the field of business administration, the following:







Students will also have access to different databases, where they can find updated information on various aspects, such as business censuses by sectors, legislation, doctoral theses and impact factors of journals. These include:




- B.O.E

- B.O.P.A.




With regard to the resources of the Library of the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences of Bilbao, the library occupies a surface area of 2,740 m2 and has 464 places for reading, 6 for viewing catalogues and 2 for viewing databases. The library is divided into two sections:

1) The Student Library, specifically for first-cycle students, although all the students of the centre can use it. It is located on the ground floor of the Central Building; and

2) The Research Library for second- and third-cycle students and teaching staff, occupying the first to fifth floors of the Main Building.

The Library of this faculty currently has bibliographical collections made up of more than 86,000 volumes and 1,400 periodicals. Students also have access to more than 2,500 electronic publications and can view more than 80 databases. To facilitate access to these collections there exist Catalogues of Authors, Titles and Subjects, automated since 1983. The manual catalogues, currently undergoing reconversion, can be viewed for previous years.

To use the loan service it is necessary to have a Reader Card issued by the Library, upon presentation of proof of enrolment and two photographs. An inter-library loan service is also available, allowing access to collections from other centres, both national and foreign. The Library also has a teledocumentation service for connection to the Biblionet network to view international databases. Professors and researchers have access to this service, with a prior booking. Finally, the library staff, at the request of the professors, offer introductory courses to the information sources and their purpose, designed for postgraduates.

At the three universities the purchase of books, periodicals and other kinds of documents is performed at the request of the professors, librarians and students. In addition, each year professors are requested to provide information on the bibliography recommended in the different subjects, in order to adapt the bibliographical collections to the needs of students of the Faculty. Thus, the three libraries provide the basic bibliographical references that students on the postgraduate program should view, as well as most of the complementary references. Therefore, we believe that the infrastructure of the libraries of the centres participating in this postgraduate program is duly conditioned and that the quantity, quality and accessibility of the information contained in the libraries are suited to the training and research needs of this doctoral program.
