Special topics; may be repeated. Prereq: consent of adviser and instructor.
Additional Course Description: 

The overall objective of this course is to provide students with the know-how and tools to make pricing decisions that align with the firm’s strategy, drive profitability, and lead to sustainable competitive advantage. This course focuses on thoroughly understanding and articulating the monetary and psychological value drivers of the firm’s value proposition, applying appropriate monetary equivalents, and successfully communicating these to the purchaser. Rather than seeking to “optimize” prices for the short run, this course takes a longer-term view of managing markets strategically.

 The course begins by teaching the  “strategic pricing pyramid” which examines four underlying strategic foundations for price setting. The course then examines the roles of costs, financial analysis, competition, and price sensitivity in pricing. Finally, the course examines pricing implementation and how to align implementation with pricing strategy.

 The course content follows Nagle, et al’s outstanding text, The Strategy and Tactics of Pricing. The content will be applied through cases and a guided simulation. Students will also prepare an independent project on a pricing topic or industry of their specific interest.

CRN: 15596
By providing a global perspective on the human experience, this course helps us think about the issues that confront students as citizens of the world. Gleaning lessons from cultures past and present this course examines what it means to be human. Whether humans are violent or peace-loving, egalitarian or hierarchical is linked to specific ways of life, rather than reflecting a fixed human nature. The course examines the economic, political, and social forces that shape human behavior and the global forces that people around the world currently confront. From an anthropological perspective it addresses pressing social issues such as sustainable development, hunger and poverty, population growth, religion and changing world views, racism, urbanization, co modification, and movements for social co modification, and movements for social justice. Writing intensive.
