Learn skills that will enable you to design and implement strategies to improve both customer experience and customer success.

Discover how to optimise customer experience within the digital economy.

The customer experience (CX) management market was already valued at $6.5 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow over 17% per year until 2027. If you want a lucrative and diverse career, growing your knowledge of CX strategies and tools is a great way to capitalise on this growth and offer an increasingly valuable service to businesses across a range of industries

Created in collaboration with Salesforce, this ExpertTrack is designed to do just that. Explore customer journeys, CX design, and how you can optimise the experience in order to grow customer loyalty, average spend, and profits.

Develop skills in designing and implementing CX and customer success strategies

You’ll grow your knowledge of CX principles and CSM methodologies. You’ll come to understand the role these play across different business contexts and how to optimise customer value for particular customer segments. You’ll then learn how to develop these CX journeys in order to meet customer value within the context of wider business goals.

Learn how CRM technology can be used to foster better customer relationships and experiences

Grow your understanding of market-leading customer relationship management (CRM) software, Salesforce, and learn how you can use it to put your strategy into practice.

Start or grow your career in a growing CX market

By learning how to connect with these customers, how to eliminate pain points, and improve their overall satisfaction, you can help your business pull ahead of the competition for stable, long-term growth.
