The International Baccalaureate Organization is a non-profit educational organization that was established in 1968. It is governed by a 16-member Council of Foundation, and is funded by fees from IB world schools, with additional income from workshops and catalogue sales.
The International Baccalaureate Organization aims 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 IBO works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
The IBO offers three programmes to a wide variety of schools located throughout the world!
