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:

X-Culture is also an excellent research platform. We collect longitudinal multi-source multi-level multi-method data on GVTs (over 2,000 variables total). More on our ongoing research here.
