Mission and Vision


We co-create knowledge, making people grow


Through co-creation we connect theory with practice and education with research. We provide students with the prerequisites to grow into critical thinkers as well as into entrepreneurial and responsible citizens. We engage them in learning to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their professional aspirations and to be competitive in the labour market.

The School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University is located in southern Sweden. It is inspired by the region’s entrepreneurial tradition and experience of cooperation and communication among actors to crease a fruitful and sustainable use of resources.

We value co-creation of knowledge in a creative environment where teachers, researchers and students support each other’s understanding and continuous development. Our commitment to co-creation entails: openness to new scientific ideas; significant value being placed on collaborations with society; and, the collective development of intellectual contributions.

Inspired by the region’s legacy and our interactive role with stakeholders, we aim to make a difference by making people grow and have an impact on sustainable business practices

Student success model

Faculty qualifications

In achieving our goal of obtaining an AACSB accreditation, teacher qualifications are an important requirement for success. Faculty Qualification Criteria (FQC) are criteria needed to be able to map and show each teachers competence and qualifications. The fulfilled criteria are the basis for how all teachers can be classified into one of the four competence categories specified by the AACSB. More information in attachments.
