Over 50,000 students from 300 universities in 80 countries have taken part in X-Culture over the years, and more join the project every semester (full list here <https://x-culture.org/participants/>). About X-Culture: · X-Culture is a partnership of business professors. We put our students in global virtual teams (GVTs). About 6 per team, each in a different country. The students work on real-life international business challenges presented by real companies. The students basically serve as IB consultants, while also learning how to work with people from other cultures. · No simulations. No games. Real international virtual teams. Real clients. No travel needed. All collaboration is virtual. · About 5,000 MBA and undergraduate students from 40+ countries on 6 continents participate in X-Culture every semester (50,000+ have participated in X-Culture so far). · The best students are then invited to X-Culture Global Symposium <https://x-culture.org/category/meetings/> 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.
