MicroMaster Service management: design of successful experiences (National University of Córdoba)

General

Program Description

Learn concepts, tools, models and train your skills to develop successful service experiences focused on customers.

We live a moment of humanity strongly impacted by political, social and technological changes. If the last century was characterized by an unprecedented industrial boom, in the last decades the services sector (tertiary sector) has become the most important sector of the world economy. Today, services provide more than 60% of employment and GDP in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Markets have changed: new categories of products and services are emerging faster and faster, the expansion of internet in everyday life provides opportunities and innovations that we had never imagined before. Customers have also changed: they are increasingly demanding, are not willing to wait, are informed and have access to technologies at all times.

There are new rules of the game and with them new opportunities and challenges. Therefore, from the Faculty of Economic Sciences of the National University of Córdoba, we have designed an online, massive and open MicroMasters program to learn the concepts, tools and models for the design of successful service experiences.

The program consists of three online courses that integrate content from strategy, marketing, operations and human resources, focused on customer knowledge. It includes cases and activities that train the participant through creative and enjoyable dynamics.

Students of this online program are introduced to work with tools, models and strategies to face the challenges inherent in operations management and the provision of quality services in the current context, promoting a customer-oriented mentality. They are expected to use the tools we offer to improve their future experiences, not only as employees or service managers, but also as clients of various types of service companies or creating their own projects.

Job Outlook

The Program has been specially designed to enhance the following aspects valued in the various fields of professional practice:

  • Leadership. Promote the rational capacity for analysis and action, which builds and motivates work teams and conducts them successfully.
