Dear IB/IM Colleagues,
If you would like to add a real international business consulting project to your IB or Intl. Marketing course, X-Culture is accepting applications.

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).

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 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.
