This class will focus on pricing and revenue management.

Over the past four decades, business and academic economists, operations researchers, marketing scientists, and consulting firms have increased their interest and research on pricing and revenue management. This course covers a wide variety of pricing techniques commonly practiced by service providers such as, Internet content providers, cable TV operators, the airlines industry, hotels, phone operators, concert halls, movie theaters, electricity and gas companies, and more. This course provides the student with a large number of pricing discrimination tools, as well as techniques for selling services under capacity constraints which require the use of advance booking, refunds, and overbooking techniques. The course is theoretical in the sense that students will be required to practice and solve a large number of numerical problem sets.
