Dear IB/IM Colleagues:

 

If you are teaching International Business / Management / Marketing or a related course,
X-Culture is the best way to add a real international business experience to your course.

 

We are accepting applications for the upcoming semester.

 

X-Culture is a partnership of 550+ IB professors from around the world.

 

About 5,000 MBA and undergraduate students from 130 universities in 40 on 6 continents participate in X-Culture every semester (almost 40,000 have taken part in X-Culture so far).

 

We put our students in global virtual teams (GVTs).
About 7 per team, each in a different country.
The students work on real-life international business challenges presented by real companies. Real cultural differences. Real time-zones. Real clients.

 

No travel needed – all communication is online.

 

The best students are then invited to X-Culture Symposium where they meet their team members and top managers from the client company.

 

X-Culture just won the Wharton’s 2016 Re-Imagine Education Award in the Nurturing Employability category.

 

WEBINAR:
If you just want to learn more, attend one of our Live Webinars where we explain in more detail how X-Culture works, who should participate, the task the students work on, our corporate partners, our data for researchers interested in publishing, and Q&A: https://x-culture.org/x-culture-project-introduction-webinar/
