Overview

Demystify differential pricing and revenue management

How do airlines, hotels, resorts and other organisations manage their prices? Why are these prices apparently unrelated to costs and different for each consumer? And what are the underlying reasons and processes behind these prices?

On this course you’ll answer these questions and more. You will consider the pricing strategies of different industries and explore the mechanisms at the core of differential pricing and revenue management.

Through the course you will apply your learning to practical pricing problems, pricing simulation games and interactive case studies.

This course is for any professionals looking to apply pricing strategy and revenue management techniques to their organisation. It will also be useful to students of economics and business as well as everyday consumers keen to understand why and how prices vary.

This is a course for everyone on beginner level and on a medium-level for those interested in specific fields: airlines, hotels, hospitality. Declared workload is viable, but for full experience (additional materials, more involvement into discussions) one should count several additional hours a week.

Many concepts discussed here are useful not only on professional level, as an insight into pricing strategies and their causes, and the current status of revenue management, but also as a part of personal life (how does the airline industry works - please keep in mind, the course is …

A compelling course on pricing strategies that combines videos, articles, exercises, quizzes, games, graphics, clear explanations, and interviews with the masters of Revenue Management. Teachers are well engaged in the forums, giving feedback and helping students to think about what they learn. Highly recommended for those who are into hospitality, travel or other service industries. If you want to be a Hotel Manager, you can't miss this course!

Nice variety of the learning material: clear and short videos, cartoon like animations, interviews, articles, and also access to a fantastic online pricing simulation platform.

The course is very concrete and practice oriented, and I am redefining right now my own pricing strategy thanks to it.

Highly recommanded.

I originally took this course to comply with CDP demands of teaching and NVQ assessor roles. It looked like the least objectionably on the list but turned out to be the one of the best course I have ever done. Absolutely Brilliant! I have learnt so much and thought about topics that I would have never have done before. I would highly recommend this course.

Very nice organized with good slides and interesting interviews. It is mainly as an introduction on the subject but experienced professionals could also find it interesting.

Awesome! I do really enjoy this course; at first I refreshed all the past thing I´ve learned, but the 2 lasts weeks I started to learn something new and different!

Educators and mentor were always answering questions and giving feedback.

I do really promote this course, it is very interesting, with excellent interviews with great RM experts and very smooth to understand!

Thank you very much, Christophe, Nathalie and Mai; and all the colleagues I had during the course!

:D :D

I suggest the course to everyone who wants to learn some basics about Pricing Strategy & Revenue Management.

It is really well organised during all the four weeks with different activities proposed and "Check Assessment Tests" to focus on the main concepts week by week.

So I enjoyed the course and the related videos about real life scenarios. Thank you!

Good basic course. The concepts are presently simply and clearly. The course is easy and short enough to complete even if you have limited time.

Do not expect an advanced or detailed revenue management course . The quizzes are very simple, good enjoyable basic intro to RM.
