If you are teaching International Business, Marketing, Entrepreneurship,
Cross-Cultural Management or related courses,
X-Culture<>is accepting
applications for the early 2013 season.

The idea is very simple:
X-Culture<>is an
experiential learning project. We team up students enrolled in
International Business and related courses around the world and the
students work on a term project in global virtual teams (7 students, 7
countries). See for details.

The project is designed to give students an opportunity to gain first-hand
experience in cross-cultural collaboration. It is also an excellent
platform for *research* (longitudinal multi-level multi-source data
collected) and professional and inter-institutional collaboration.

About 2,000 from 40+ universities in 30+ countries participate in X-Culture
every semester (roughly 30% MBA, 70% UG).

We provide all the materials and administrative support; you do what
instructors do in any team project: answer emails, grade team reports, etc.

Universities participate for free, but the application process is highly
competitive with acceptance rate ranging from 20 to 70%, depending on the
region. Priority is given to applications from under-represented regions
and from instructors also interested in research.

The tentative dates for the 2013-1 season (can still be adjusted by a few

Early track: January 18-March 18

Late track: March 1-April 28.

English is the working language. Students who do not speak English may be
able to participate under special arrangements  contact us for details.
