Graduate Certificate in Customer Success Management


Customer Value Strategy

In this course, you’ll analyse the emerging Software as a Service (SaaS) model, and how ‘customer value’ ties in with larger business objectives. You’ll learn the fundamentals of customer value strategy, prepare customer value recommendations, and use this knowledge to drive competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Customer Solution & Value Analytics

This course is all about using data, insights and analytics to equip customers with the right technology solutions to improve their performance. You'll start by mapping the customer lifecycle, analysing trends and searching for opportunities. Learn how data informs key metrics like Customer Lifetime Value and Net Promoter Score, and how segmentation, value pool analysis and customer loyalty are driving industry growth.

Customer Relationships & Influencing Stakeholders

Customer Success is all about relationships: with business stakeholders, as well as clients. This course will examine successful customer relationship techniques, and how to communicate successful strategies (or tricky customer challenges) to the wider business. You’ll learn how to foster high value relationships, drive organisational change, and build customer empathy.
