The International Baccalaureate (IB) was founded as a progressive non-profit educational foundation in 1968. Its aim is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through the understanding and respect of different nationalities and cultures.
Today, the IB works with almost 5,000 schools in over 150 countries and offers three academic programmes and one career-related programme to over 1.2 million students worldwide. The academic programmes are the Primary Years Programme for children aged 3 to 11; the Middle Years Programme for students aged between 11 and 16; and the Diploma Programme for students aged 16 to 18.
