In our contribution we will analyze typical behavioral factors coming up in virtual multicultural teams, thus in teams working together across geographical boundaries by communicating mainly by the use of electronic media. With the help of an online business game we aim to find innovative ways to train team members and leaders to acquire skills required for efficient virtual multicultural teamwork and communication. Students´ data will help in a first step to find out more about the factors influencing virtual multicultural teams and will, as a second step, serve as a basis for creating a virtual team training for business.
