The IB's mission 


Since it was founded in 1968, the IB’s mission has been built on a cornerstone of creating a better world through education. We believe that now more than ever and are committed to ensuring that our educational programs reflect this for the benefit of IB schools and students. 


The IB programs focus on fostering critical thinking and building problem-solving skills, while encouraging diversity, international mindedness, curiosity, and a healthy appetite for learning and excellence. 

An IB education provides students distinct advantages as they enter a world where asking the right questions is as important as discovering answers. For over 50 years, our global community of world class educators and coordinators engage with more than 1.4 million students in over 5,300 schools across 158 countries.

It focuses on personal, professional and academic development and is globally recognized by universities for the holistic and rigorous education it provides.
