Key Findings

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Global Research Department collaborates with universities and independent research organizations worldwide to produce rigorous studies examining the impact and outcomes of IB programs.  Areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to:  standards alignment, program implementation, the learner profile and student performance.  In addition, many researchers - independent of the IB - produce quality studies on the effects of IB programs.

University Recognition

University Recognition of the IB Diploma

Universities have established their individual policies towards recognition of the IB Diploma.  Recognition policies of US Universities are available in a searchable database here: http://www.ibo.org/country/US/

In addition, the IBO has compiled University Recognition Policy Summaries on a State by State basis, available here:  http://www.ibo.org/diploma/recognitionpolicy/.

Please note that these policies are under constant refinement by higher education and these summaries may not be current.  Please check the colleges and universities directly.
