We place students in international virtual teams with peers from around the world: 7 students per team, each in a different country.
They solve real-life problems presented by real-life companies.
In the process, they learn about other countries and cultures, learn how to collaborate online, work as a team, and solve business challenges.
X-Culture is a successful global phenomenon.
Every semester, thousands of MBA and college students from hundreds of universities around the world take part in X-Culture. As of 2017, over 40,000 students have participated in X-Culture, and about 5,000 more are added every semester.
Now pre-college youths and non-student adults can participate in X-Culture
Following the popularity of the project with universities, we have been receiving requests to create a “kids” version of X-Culture. Younger children are fully capable and could greatly benefit from interacting with their peers around the world.
As a beta-test, X-Culture is now open to children ages 9-17 and non-student adults.
All participants are working with peers of their own age. Each team is comprised of people of the same age.
The younger participants receive exactly the same training and complete the same project as the university students. However, the task is a little simplified for the younger participants. The children will also receive additional pre-project training to ensure they are fully prepared for the experience.
The rest is the same. Just like their university peers, the younger participants will also work in global virtual teams with their peers, develop their solutions to real-life problems presented by real companies, meet the company CEOs in live webinars, write and present their reports, and receive X-Culture Global Business Collaboration Certificates.
For the 2018-1 round, our clients are companies like Innospark (educational toys) and Me Late Chocolate (chocolate) to make sure the products are familiar and interesting for the younger X-Culture participants.Read more...
