Biography

CEIBS

Marco Bertini is Associate Professor of Marketing Management at ESADE in Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona), Spain. He is considered a leading expert in the area of pricing strategy.

Marco holds a Doctor of Business Administration from Harvard Business School, a Master of Business Administration from IESE Business School, and undergraduate degrees in Arts (Politics and International Studies) and Commerce (Economics) from The University of Melbourne. His research, which investigates the customer and managerial psychology of pricing decisions, appears in the major journals for marketing academics (Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, and Marketing Science) and business practitioners (Harvard Business Review and MIT Sloan Management Review), and it is often cited in print media and television—most recently in the BBC, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Financial Times, The Times, and Wall Street Journal.

In 2012, Marco was nominated for the Business Professor of the Year award, a global competition administered by the Economist Intelligence Unit, and in 2013 he was recognised by the Marketing Science Institute in the United States as one of the most promising researchers in the discipline as part of its biennial Young Scholars programme.

Before joining ESADE, Marco was on the faculty at London Business School for eight years, where he developed and taught Pricing as Strategy, the most popular marketing elective on the school’s MBA and Executive MBA curricula, and participated in a broad range of open enrolment and custom programmes for senior managers. He has also taught or is teaching at other educational institutions in Europe (IESE Business School, INSEAD, Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge, Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, and Warsaw University of Technology Business School), the United States (Columbia Business School), and Asia (China Europe International Business School).

Marco is a frequent keynote speaker on pricing issues and his consulting clients have ranged from entrepreneurial start-ups to Global Fortune 500 companies and government. He is a member of several academic associations, pricing platforms, and the academic liaison committee of the Chief Marketing Officer Council.

A native of Italy, Marco has also lived in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and now Spain.
