Pricing Psychology

In this final module we will look at pricing psychology.

We will also conduct a couple of experiments with volunteer customers to see how price affects perceptions, and how you can profit from it....

Although they are harder concepts and more practices to remember, it was a very insightful course! I truly enjoyed the additional readings to elaborate on the lectures. Thank you very much, IE!

Great course. All the concepts were clearly explained. They had provided plenty of case studies, articles, journals and books to read. The content delivery was great. I found it very useful.
