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 <>).

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
   - 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
   - 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
   <>, 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.
