Short Course in Customer Service Management


The purpose of the Short Course in Customer Service Management is to introduce students to the complexities of rendering service on a one-to-one basis, as well as managing this function in a service provision organisation. The main areas that students focus on are the general principles of customer service, its advantages to an organisation, the steps involved in developing a service plan and the personal features of the excellent service provider. The aim is to develop the service delivery skills of individual students and to equip them for higher-level positions in the service divisions of organisations. The short course also lays the foundation for the students to advance to the one-year Programme in Customer Service Management. This short course serves as a credit for one of the six modules of the one-year programme.
