About the International Baccalaureate program

IBDP – what`s in the name?
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP) was established in 1968 to provide an international, and internationally recognized, university-entrance qualification for students studying outside of their home country. The IB’s goal is to provide students with the values and opportunities that will enable them to develop sound judgment, make wise choices, and respect others in the global community.
The IB Diploma Programme emphasizes academic achievement, critical thinking, research skills and community service. It has been operating world-wide for almost 50 years and is in place in almost 3000 schools in over 140 countries around the world. As the programme has grown, so too has its reputation for excellence; the IB DP is now recognized in almost every country in the world as a one of the pre-eminent pre-university qualifications.
