Dear IB Colleagues: If you would like to add a real international business consulting project to your International Business/Management/Marketing courses, the X-Culture Project might be a good choice. Over 70,000 students from 500 universities in 110 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. Real international virtual teams. Real clients. No travel needed. All collaboration is virtual. - About 6,000 MBA and undergraduate students from 70+ countries on 6 continents participate in X-Culture every semester (70,000+ 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 won the Wharton’s Re-Imagine Education Award in the Nurturing Employability category. - Research is a big part of X-Culture. So if you need to publish, we can help, too.
