THE IB DIPLOMA PROGRAMME
DIPLOMA PROGRAMME OVERVIEW
Critical Thinking Skills and International-mindedness
Life in the 21st century, in an interconnected, globalized world, requires critical-thinking skills and a sense of international-mindedness, something that International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme students come to know and understand. The IB Diploma Programme is designed as an academically challenging and balanced programme of education with final examinations that prepares students, normally aged 16 to 19, for success at university and life beyond. The programme is normally taught over two years and has gained recognition and respect from the world’s leading universities.
