MicroMasters in Customer Relationship Management 

While all businesses focus their efforts on excellent customer service it usually ends there. It is also important that the relationship built with the customer from the point of sale is sustained. The goal of your business should be to develop brand ambassadors and it starts with your regular customers!

It is expected that the learner will have a clear understanding of their role in customer relationship and learn skills in handling difficult situations with ease so as to project a positive and professional image of the business to its customer.

Good customer service can be considered as the big differentiator between firms. While competing products are often similar and can anyway be easily duplicated, good customer service is a holistic system, requiring a sustained organization-wide effort, driven by the top and permeating all aspects of the organization culture. The resulting customer-centric organization becomes a formidable competitor whose model cannot be easily copied.
