Strategic Guiding Principles

The Department of Service Management and Service Studies

Work at the department shall move forward according to our strategic guiding principles, which summarise what we already do, what we shall continue to do and what we need to develop.

The mission of the Department of Service Management and Service Studies is to conduct education and research to understand, problematise and contribute to the development of services and the service society. Our activities are based on the methods and theories of social sciences. Critical societal perspectives are of particular importance to the department’s education and research. Teaching staff and researchers represent different disciplinary fields and perspectives which combine to form the basis of our interdisciplinary education and research.
