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 http://www.x-culture.org/for_instructors.html 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 days):

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.

Detailed information about the project can be found at www.X-Culture.org
