Dear IB/IM Teachers:
If you're teaching IB/IM and want to add an experiential component to your course, X-Culture is a good option for you.
X-Culture is a partnership of IB professors from around the world.
Over 3,500 MBA/EMBA from 40 on 6 continents participate in X-Culture each semester (106 universities already approved for this semester).
The students are put in Global Virtual Teams of about 7 (each from a different country) and the teams work for a semester on real-life IB challenges presented by real-life companies.
The best students are then invited to X-Culture Symposium (last few hosted by Mercedes-Benz, Home Depot, Louis Vuitton).
Here is how it works: www.x-culture.org
Here is why you as a professor want to add it to your course: http://x-culture.org/for-instructors/
X-Culture is also an excellent research platform. We collect longitudinal multi-source multi-level data on GVTs (over 2,000 variables total), so if you’re interested in research on groups, we have the biggest dataset in the world.
