About this class

In the dynamic world of business, economics is fundamental.

Understanding economic logic is essential when reflecting on how firms choose their strategies and behave under different market structures. For example, price is a signal for both producers and consumers to interact in a market setting.

In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to some of the pricing strategies used by firms to increase total revenue. We’ll start with the basic concept of demand, how firms use the elasticity concept when strategizing how to price and position their products, and lastly see examples of how firms implement technology when pricing their products.

You’ll have the opportunity to put your knowledge intro practice during a group activity with your peers.
