The International Baccalaureate (IB), formerly known as the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), is a worldwide, nonprofit education program founded to give all students the opportunity to receive an education fit for a globalizing world. Its headquarter is in Geneva, Switzerland, and founded in 1968.
