Service science is an exciting and a crucial area in which we must increase expertise in order to stay ahead. This MSc programme is aimed at future leaders of services-based industries, and provides you with the opportunity to focus on the transition from product-centric to service-centric thinking.
The Course Provides
During the course you’ll consider the complexity of services that bring together a mesh of organisations, people, technologies and information to deliver value to the customer. You will understand the importance of experience and value to all stakeholders and be able to create a stakeholder map and use it to inform service design or redesign.
Enrolment on the MSc Service Management and Design gives you the opportunity to take the short “Lean Six Sigma Green Belt” course in addition to your Masters programme.
Core Modules: 1. Service Design and Delivery 2. Reputation and Relationship Management 3. Service Support Technologies 4. Leading Change 5. Financial Analysis and Control Systems 6. Project Planning, Management and Control 7. Organisations, People and Performance
Plus two elective modules from the full list of modules.
The taught component of the course is a mixture of lectures, seminars, technology-enabled learning, syndicate/group work, practical work and forum activities. Module leaders are experts in their fields and are supported by external speakers working in organisations at the forefront of their fields.
Industrial visits are available to all students and the course is assessed through post module assignments.
Each module will usually last one week.
After You Graduate
Our degree was developed within the Service Systems Research Group at WMG, working alongside leading companies such as IBM, Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems. You’ll join our collective drive to actively shape research and teaching in this area. It is particularly relevant for the ‘servitisation’ of manufacturing companies, but is not sector-specific and is equally applicable to public sector, healthcare, financial services, oil and gas, tourism and a broad range of other industries.
