Over 70% of the world’s economy is services. The MSc Management in a Service Economy aims to equip graduates with the ability to create and deliver reliable customer centred service – a key differentiator for business today. In many industries, profit margins on product sales have shrunk enormously, leading to an increased focus on generating profits through value-added services. Thus, the best firms now bundle customer-centred service with a manufactured product and create service centred solutions. Some, like IBM have moved completely to service and solutions.
Service Management as a body of knowledge has made immense progress in the last decade. Economies are more and more service-focused and it has become imperative to study all aspects of managing service. Buckingham is among the very few universities in the world to have responded to the demand for the creation of expertise in this area and to have established a track-record of success.

Everything I have learned from the course comes alive in my consulting work. I am using the cycle of service to assess the call centre processes and service standards; taking the SERVQUAL dimensions to design a customer satisfaction survey on the HR Shared Service Centre; using Southwest Airlines case for business development; helping expatriates with cross cultural training; using my project management knowledge to manage my work etc. etc. There are countless examples of how Service Management has helped me to perform well and come out with good solutions on the project.Jingqi Li (Service Management 2009)Read more student testimonials
