How much should you charge for your products and services? Traditionally, businesses have answered this question based on the cost to produce or provide their goods and services. This course shows you the economic factors behind pricing based on cost and the pros and cons of a cost-based pricing approach. Led by Darden faculty and Boston Consulting Group global pricing experts, the course provides the practical and research-based models and methods you need to set prices that maximize your profits.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
--Apply knowledge of basic economics to make better pricing decisions
--Recognize opportunities for price discrimination—selling the same product at different prices to different buyers—and recommend strategies to maximize sales and profits
--Calculate three types of price elasticities to determine the impact of price on demand
--Analyze and apply different pricing models
-Cost-plus pricing
-Marginal cost-plus pricing
-Peak-load pricing
-Index-based pricing
--Evaluate the impact of channel intermediaries and customer lifetime value on pricing...

Even if you are familiar with the basics of microeconomics, and cost structures, this course combines it all together to provide a new perspective of using these models and concepts in pricing.

Excellent course. In my view, the academic rigor of the week exercises needs to be improved even for a beginner level.

Clear course and teachers, challenging quizzes. Some interesting and advanced concepts (for instance on retail, bids). You need some mathematical knowledge to pass (derivatives, algebra, statistics...)

If you already have a business / marketing education, half of the concepts and methods won't be new to you.

I would have like to have a bit more explanations for the final peer-graded exam. Also it can take some time (1-2 weeks) for 3 other students to grade your final assessment if not enough people follow the course at the moment.

I really loved the structure of this course. Lectures are very clear, additional questions help you memorize the material and focus on the most important things. This is the first course that provides lecture resources that are very useful to keep in mind the material you have learned. This course material is focused on the practical side, making it even better. Thanks for the knowledge, I will definitely use them in practice!

Great refresher course on pricing and economics. Focuses on different pricing strategies (elasticity, pricing function, auctions, cost plus pricing, peak load pricing, index based pricing, marginal cost pricing, target cost plus pricing). Ron Wilcox and the BCG team does a great job in delivering lecture and keeping you engaged in the course.

I highly recommend this course. Thank you to professors for sharing the course material in such a sincere way. Course is very well designed. I did not have background in pricing prior to this course. This course definitely made me interested in learning more on pricing strategy optimization.
