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 100,000 students from 500 universities in 110 countries have participated in X-Culture over the years.


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 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 is 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 the X-Culture Global Symposium, where they meet their team members and top managers from the client company.

X-Culture won 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.





*The dates are tentative and will be finalized after the participant list is ready and we have information about all participants’ academic schedules. +/- up to 7 days is possible.
