The International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate

Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate (IB) pioneered a movement of international education, and now offers four high quality, challenging educational programmes to students aged 3-19. We work with schools, universities and governments to fulfil our mission to create a better world through education.

The IB gives students distinct advantages by providing strong foundations, critical thinking skills, and proficiency for solving complex problems, while encouraging diversity, curiosity, and a healthy appetite for learning and excellence. In a world where asking the right questions is as important as discovering answers, the IB champions critical thinking and flexibility in study by crossing disciplinary, cultural and national boundaries.

Supported by world class educators and coordinators, the IB currently engages with more than 2 million students in over 5,600 schools across 159 countries.
