Bertini, Marco

Associate Professor of Marketing Management, ESADE

Marco Bertini is Associate Professor and Department Head of the marketing subject area at ESADE (Barcelona, Spain). He completed his doctoral studies at Harvard Business School, and was previously on the faculty at the London Business School.

Marco’s research, which for the most part lies at the interface of the economics and psychology of pricing decisions, appears in the leading journals for marketing science (including the Journal of Consumer Research, the Journal of Marketing, the Journal of Marketing Research and Marketing Science) and management practice (including the Harvard Business Review and the MIT Sloan Management Review). His teaching, speaking engagements and advisory work similarly focus on the challenge of designing and implementing a proper strategy to generate revenue from meaningful differentiation.

Recently, Marco was named to the Thinkers50 Radar, a shortlist of the scholars “most likely to shape the future of how organisations are managed and led.” Prior to this, he was nominated for the Business Professor of the Year Award, a global competition of the Economist Intelligence Unit, and recognised by the Marketing Science Institute in the United States as one of the most promising scholars in the field.

A native of Italy, Marco also lived in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and, now, Spain. For more information, please visit www.marcobertini.com.
