Why the International Baccalaureate is Leading the Globe in International Education

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is leading the globe in international education. With its powerful continuum of student-centric learning, the IB programme develops well-rounded individuals who are better prepared for higher education and life beyond.  

Through the IB, educators are equipped and enabled to develop resilient and self-motivated students who have the knowledge, skills, and sense of purpose to not only meet and exceed standards but thrive. Many students who receive their education from an IB World School go on to become leaders, contributing to their communities to make the world a better place.  

Globally recognized, with a presence in over 150 countries and over 5,000 IB World Schools, the IB is here to stay. Top universities across the world recognize the strength and rigor of the IB and its Diploma Programme (DP). Established in 1968, the IBDP provides an international education to enable young people to better understand and manage the complexities of our world, while simultaneously providing them with the skills and attitudes to take action to improve it. 

Such an education was grounded in the belief that the world could be made better through an education that focused on concepts, ideas, and issues that crossed disciplinary, cultural, national, and geographical boundaries.  

The DP provides a challenging, internationally focused, broad, and balanced educational experience for students from 16 to 19 years old. Students are required to study six subjects and a curriculum core concurrently over two years. The programme is designed to equip students with the basic academic skills needed for university study, further education, and their chosen profession.  

The DP builds off foundations laid during the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Middle Years Programme (MYP). From nursery to grade five, students can take part in the PYP which allows each student to utilize inquiry to engage in trans-disciplinary and real-world explorations. 

Moving on to MYP, from grades six to grade ten, where the emphasis is put on intellectual challenge, learning by doing, and making practical connections between student’s subjects and the real world. During MYP students build confidence in their own learning within a global context as they navigate what it means to act as a responsible citizen in the world. Both programmes fuel the fires needed for students to successfully navigate the rigor of the DP. In short, the IB sets students up for long-term success in their educational and professional careers. 

Research shows that students who attend an IB World School are more likely to complete an undergraduate degree and pursue graduate work than non-IB students. IB students excel outside of the classroom as well.  

They are proven to have exceptional time management skills, a strong sense of self-motivation, show interest in civic engagement, take part in and lead community service opportunities, are more likely to be engaged in university life, have high critical thinking abilities, and hold an international outlook.  

University representatives notice that IB students are more prepared for the high standards of the university, liberal arts, and science college academics. Due to the rigor and strength of the IB curriculum, most IB students can rise above the challenges they face in subjects to advance.  

The IB supports the development and preparation for students to transition into top universities and succeed well beyond their educational careers. To develop the most well-rounded, intelligent, global leaders of the next generation, IB is the way to go.
