2 History of the International Baccalaureate (IB)
The International Baccalaureate (IB) was founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1968 as a non-profit educational foundation A group of talented, forward-thinking teachers at the International School of Geneva, with the assistance from several other international schools, created the IB Diploma Programme. Started as a single programme for internationally mobile students preparing for university studies

The programme in the early days consisted of a common pre-university curriculum and a common set of external examinations for students in schools throughout the world, seeking to provide students with a truly international education The first IB schools were predominantly private international schools and a very small number of private national institutions and schools belonging to state education departments

4 History of the International Baccalaureate (IB)
This has changed over the years and today over half of all IB World Schools are state schools. Carrying forward the ideals and dreams of the IB founders, the organization exists to provide high quality education for a better world Today, the programme has grown into three programmes for students aged 3-19
