International Baccalaureate (IB)

The International Baccalaureate (IB), formerly known as the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), is an international educational foundation headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and founded in 1968.

 
 

It offers three educational programmes: the IB Diploma Programme and the IB Career-related Programme for students aged 16 to 19, the IB Middle Years Programme, designed for students aged 11 to 16, and the IB Primary Years Programme for children aged 3 to 12.

To teach these programmes, schools need to be authorised by IB.

The organization’s name and logo were changed in 2007 to reflect a reorganisation.

Consequently, “IB” may now refer to the organisation itself, any of the four programmes, or the diploma or certificates awarded at the end of a programme.
