This session will describe how technology has allowed UI students enrolled in an undergraduate business course to have an impactful cross-cultural experience without leaving the UI campus. Diverse teams comprised of 5-7 students at the UI and Kozsminski University in Warsaw, Poland have collaborated to address a "real world" business problem faced by an entrepreneur working in Warsaw. Students used a variety of technologies to collaborate, collect data and create a final analysis that was shared with the entrepreneur. Successes, challenges, and future goals for this project will be discussed.
