This specialist certificate course is about product pricing in managerial economics. First, you will be introduced to multi-product pricing and the basic determinants of price. Price discrimination and its degrees will be covered, with graphical and numerical examples for a better understanding. International price discrimination will be highlighted, with a specific emphasis on dumping.

Then, you will learn about cost-based pricing and pricing based on the firm’s objectives. Competition-based pricing will be specifically unravelled and the material will address product life-cycle pricing. You will also be taught how prices are set at the various stages of the business cycle, along with cyclical pricing and value pricing. Following multi-product pricing, you will also learn about Ramsey pricing (also known as the Ramsey problem or Ramsey–Boiteux pricing)  and transfer pricing, among other pricing models.
