The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program® was established to provide an intellectually rigorous and academically demanding common curriculum for students in schools around the world: an "international passport" to higher education. Its strengths come from the best of many national educational systems. The IB is a comprehensive and rigorous two-year curriculum leading to examinations for students aged between 16 and 19. The general objectives of the IB are to provide students with a balanced education, to facilitate geographic and cultural mobility, and to promote international understanding through a shared academic experience.
