Outsourcing has been a major discussion topic for several years. It is common to pick up any IT trade publication and not see some article about managing global IT or IT outsourcing or IT offshoring or even the news briefs about a US company setting up some information technology operation in India or China or another locale. Outsourcing is tied to global teams or to 'virtual teams'. This paper describes how three campuses experimented with "Global Virtual Student Teams" as an approach to learning about outsourcing, outsourcing management and virtual communications. One of the campuses was in Belarus and two were in the United States. © 2008 EDSIG.
