UNIT DESCRIPTION
The UK is a service economy with more than 70% of GDP and 75% of employment within
the service sector. Many students will already be employed in a service industry or are
very likely to be so in the future. In addition, many ‘products’ have strong service related
components. Marketing students, therefore, need to understand the uniqueness of
services marketing management in order to fulfil an effective management role within the
marketing function.
The Services Marketing Management elements examine the theoretical and practical
application of service marketing concepts and critically analyse and evaluate the
distinctive nature of marketing management within the service sector. Emphasis is placed
on the importance of service quality, the service encounter and customer care and the
potential conflict with the operational aspects of services.
This RM elements of the unit offer students the opportunity to study the emerging field of
Relationship Marketing (RM) and its links with Customer Relationship Management (CRM).
This is an area of increasing strategic importance to companies operating within both
consumer and business to business marketing.
Many of the methodologies adopted by practitioners in RM challenge traditional
approaches to the marketing discipline and new bodies of theory have emerged to
underpin the effective use of both the technology and the management practices
associated with this important new field.

LEARNING AND TEACHING STRATEGY
Lectures will develop and discuss key Services and RM theories and concepts. Directed
reading of key texts and independent reading of additional texts and journals will
provide the basis for discussion and evaluation of core concepts and issues within the
field of Services and RM marketing management discipline
Interactive lectures/seminars and student-led discussions will form the foundation for
contact time and students will be encouraged to debate the material they are
presented with in the light of their reading and personal investigation. Case studies
and academic papers will be used in tutorial sessions for critical analysis and
evaluation.
ASSESSMENT STRATEGY
The unit will be assessed through coursework only. Students will be asked to
demonstrate a high level of understanding through two assessments.
Both the written and presentation elements will require critical analysis and
evaluation of Services and RM operations, and will assess research, interpretation and
application skills from theoretical and applied perspectives as well as the key skills of
written and oral communication.
For the presentation, the students will be allocated one overall mark. However, at the
discretion of the assessor, individuals may be allocated marks based on their level of
contribution.
