Design for Extreme Affordability is a two-quarter course offered at Stanford’s jointly by the Graduate School of Business and the School of Engineering. This multidisciplinary project-based experience creates an enabling environment in which students learn to design products and services that will change the lives of the world’s poorest citizens. Students work directly with course partner organizations on real world problems, the culmination of which is actual implementation of solutions and real change.

Since our start in 2003, hundreds of students have worked with over 60 partner organizations in ~30 countries on solutions in the areas of agriculture, architecture, energy, food processing, irrigation, lighting, medical devices, nutrition, sanitation, stove technology and more. Partners are often the implementers of these innovations, but sometimes student teams form their own organization to carry an idea forward.
