Business at the Base-of-the-Pyramid

The world consists of about 6.2 billion people. The 4 billion consumers at the base-of-the-pyramid do not indulge in the kind of consumption to which most of marketing is directed. Their needs are more basic, including health care, education, and even food and clothing. Businesses, NGOs, Aid agencies, and Governments all play a role in serving their needs. This course will consider the several challenges and opportunities in addressing this market.
