Course content

Do you strive to be unique, want to work in a global setting and have a passion for service in the changing global world? The MSc Management in a Global Service Economy addresses the needs of the service-centred global business world, for whom service counts. This course creates graduates with the necessary knowledge and expertise to manage international service organisations and who stand out from the crowd.

Course outline

The world economy has moved from an essentially goods producing one to a services economy. A services driven market needs different tools and techniques in how to design, develop, deliver and manage these businesses.

The emphasis throughout this course is on contemporary theories and their application in real-world decision-making in the global services industry and the roles and responsibilities attached. It is particularly designed to develop a range of conceptual and analytical skills for dealing with a variety of international service issues, service business situations or cases and the strategic nature of demands within the global service sector.
