Heavy quarks are essential probes of the evolution of the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. In particular, the dependencies of the medium-induced parton energy loss on the parton mass and colour charge can be investigated via measurements of open heavy-flavour hadrons. To quantify medium effects in AA collisions, one needs to study p-A collisions in order to disentangle possible cold nuclear matter effects. Thanks to the excellent vertex and impact parameter resolution of ITS and electron-identification capability provided by TPC and TOF in the ALICE experimental setup, measurements of beauty production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions could be done via electrons from semi-leptonic decays of beauty hadrons. The recent measurements of beauty-decay electrons in p-Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV and in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 TeV in ALICE are presented.
