What is the IB?

The IB is an international not-for-profit educational foundation based in Geneva, Switzerland, which offers educational programmes for children globally. As of 2 April 2020, there were 6,995 IB programmes being offered worldwide across 5,278 schools in 158 countries.

The objective of the IB is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organisation works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

The IB's learner profile represents its mission in action, and concisely describes the aspirations of a global community that shares the values underlying the IB's educational philosophy. The IB learner profile describes the attributes and outcomes of education for international-mindedness. IB learners strive to be:

  • Inquirers
