The concept serves both as an analytical lens to challenge existing business practices and practically evaluate new sustainable business models for the tourism sector. Upon completing the course, students are able to explain the fundamental use and value of the business model concept, and to evaluate existing business practices as well as new business models for sustainability. The course consists of lectures, seminars, workshops as well as individual and group assignments.


In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
