March 13, 2020: Pricing Strategies for Executives and Entrepreneurs

From a business strategy perspective, we teach that firms should avoid competing on price because that can ultimately lead to a “race to the bottom.” However, pricing strategies are nuanced in this digital age because information is plentiful for both consumers and competitors.

Please join us as Kyle Westra, MBA in Business Strategy & Decision Making alumnus, discusses how pricing strategies are approached in the real world through the lens of his book, “The New Invisible Hand”.

A networking opportunity will immediately follow the presentation.
