We place trainees in international virtual teams with peers from around the world: 7 people 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.
Every semester, about 5,000 people from over 40 countries take part in X-Culture. As of 2018, over 45,000 students have participated in X-Culture, and about 5,000 more are added every semester.
Most participants are MBA students from over 150 universities. However, the project is also open to non-student professionals who seek to learn new skills, expand their professional network, and improve their resume.
Following the popularity of the project with universities, we have been receiving numerous inquiries from non-students who also want to participate in X-Culture; who also want an opportunity to gain international experience, learn new skills, and improve their resume.
Since 2016, non-student professionals ages 18-45 can participate in X-Culture.
The non-student professionals receive the same training and complete the same project as the MBA/university students, they work in international teams, 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 the same certificates and recommendation letters.
In 2018, we also opened our training project to pre-college teens, although the younger participants complete a simplified version of the task suitable for their age.Read more...
