Why organize a Pricing Award?
The need for pricing expertise will increase significantly in the coming years. Knowledge development on the importance and impact of pricing, pricing strategies, pricing instruments and tactics is key for organisations aiming at sustainable growth and value capturing.
In Europe experienced pricing professionals are still scarce. Only a few organizations have pricing managers today. As the need for more talent will seriously increase, students who focus on the pricing subject might be one step ahead upon entering the career market.
Therefore focussing on pricing and the importance of pricing knowledge development before entering the career market is of the utmost importance. Beginning with the student and herewith stimulating a new generation of professionals to start their career with fundamental and applied knowledge in the pricing area - is the driver behind the European Best Pricing Master Thesis Award.
Graduated and thesis students from a European University or Business School at Master level may enter the competition.
The jury will decide on the best thesis and the runners up. The jury of the European Best Pricing Master Thesis Award in Academic Year 2011 - 2012 consists of:
|Fernando Ventureira||Pricing Solutions|
|Gernot Dambacher||Evonik Industries AG|
|Manu Carricano||EADA Barcelona (University)|
