Dear AIB Colleagues:

Are you teaching IB, IM or a related course?

X-Culture is the best way to add a real international business experience
to your course.

And we are accepting applications for the upcoming semester.

X-Culture <> is a partnership of 550+ IB
professors from around the world. Not a company. We don’t want to sell
anything to you. Just a partnership of IB colleagues.

About *5,000* MBA and undergraduate students from *130* universities in *40*
 on *6* continents participate in X-Culture every semester (almost *40,000*
have taken part in X-Culture so far).

We put our students in global virtual teams (GVTs).
About 7 per team, each in a different country.
The students work on real-life international business challenges presented
by real companies. Real cultural differences. Real time-zones. Real clients.

No travel needed – all communication is online.

The best students are then invited to X-Culture Symposium
<> where they meet their team
members and top managers from the client company.

X-Culture just won the *Wharton’s 2016 Re-Imagine Education Award* in the
Nurturing Employability category.

If you just want to learn more, attend one of our Live Webinars where we
explain in more detail how X-Culture works, who should participate, the
task the students work on, our corporate partners, our data for researchers
interested in publishing, and Q&A:
