New name for the department – ISM becomes SES

Graphic. Text "ISM" arrow pointing to text "SES".

From January 2023 we are called The department of service studies. With the name change we want to increase the comprehensibility of our department name while expressing professionalism and closeness to the research area.

The name change means that "Service management" will disappear from the department titel. However, our bachelor ans masters programmes will still be called Service mnanagement, and the students will get their degree in service management.

The new name also means that we are changing our abbrevation that is used on web pages and in e-mail adresses. The previous ISM (Institutionen för Service Management, The department of service management in Swedish) will now be SES (SErvice Studies). You will still be able to send e-mails to our old adress as well as visiting old links with during a transition period.
