   consultants, while also learning how to work with people from other
   - No simulations. No games. Real international virtual teams. Real
   clients. No travel needed. All collaboration is virtual.

   participated in X-Culture so far).
   - The best students are then invited to X-Culture Global Symposium
   <> where they meet their team members
   and top managers from the client company.
   - X-Culture recently won the Wharton’s Re-Imagine Education Award in the
   Nurturing Employability category.
