Unit profile


The Department of Service Studies is a successful unit for education and research within service organisations. We offer management education with a cutting-edge competence in retail, health, logistics, supply chain management, sustainability, culture and creativity, tourism and hotels. Our courses are developed in collaboration with leading industry companies and organisations. We are a part of Lund University at the dynamic Campus Helsingborg.


The research at the Department of Service Studies is based on current problems in society focusing on the service sector. It interrogates, questions, contributes with new perspectives, and shows sustainable ways forward for the service society. The department’s lecturers, professors and doctoral students contribute with their research expertise from more than ten disciplines. Our research is conducted in close collaboration with organisations, industry and decision makers. Through a broad interdisciplinary profile, the research has unique opportunities to contribute to sustainable development in line with Agenda 2030. The research at the department is divided into five themes: ”Consumption, Marketing & Retail”, “Management, Organization & Work”, “Sustainability, “Resources & Services”, “Tourism, Place & Mobility” and “Culture & Creativity”.
