Pricing manager

Specialism: Financial management

What is a pricing manager and what do they do?

Pricing professionals help businesses determine and set competitive prices to gain market share and achieve revenue goals. They contribute to strategies that take advantage of untapped market segments and help companies gain market share in new areas. Pricing managers have responsibility for using the information provided by the pricing analysts and setting pricing schemes for the company’s products and/or services. They translate data into actionable strategies to determine the correct market pricing, drive sales and enhance marketing efforts. This includes setting base prices as well as any discounts or promotions that may be offered to specific retail partners or as part of promotional campaigns.

Corporate resilience and decision making

At times of immense pressure, businesses can make decisions that affect their whole future, and sometimes those decisions can be bad ones. The coronavirus pandemic wiped out whole businesses before they even had a chance to react. It's critical that we think about the way that we make decisions, so that we can develop a plan for the future, and so that we can respond robustly and rapidly to any future shocks.

This course looks at the way that we make decisions, how sometimes we make bad decisions, some common mistakes and traps we can fall into, and how we can develop a methodology to optimise our decision making to cope with any future shock the world may throw at us.
