Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.  The IB has a hard-earned reputation for high standards of teaching, pedagogical leadership and student achievement. We work with schools, governments, and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. (From IBO.org)
