that was originally developed with sponsorship from Rolls-Royce plc
and has been operational since January 2000. In January 2003 the
course took its first intake of students from outside the UK (from
Canada, Italy, and the United States) and the Centre began to use the
Internet to broadcast its seminars to the students in these countries.
The course is now open to students in a large number of countries.
In October 2003 the new MSc in
Customer Service Management commenced and this will be followed in
