About IPBS

International Partnership of Business Schools

The International Partnership of Business Schools (IPBS) is a consortium of 13 leading business schools in Europe, North and Latin America. The partner schools are located in Dublin (Ireland), Lancaster (United Kingdom), Madrid (Spain), Reims/Rouen (France), Reutlingen (Germany), Piacenza (Italy), Boston (MA, USA), Raleigh (NC, USA), Elon (NC,USA), San Diego (CA, USA), Puebla (Mexico), São Paulo (Brazil) and St. Catharines (Canada).

The IPBS partners offer undergraduate programmes that grant double degrees, require study in two countries, and promote language and cultural fluency along with business aptitude. Furthermore, six of these partners offer an intensive full-time Masters of Science in Global Management (MGM) Programme (12-15 months duration – excluding any compulsory internships – depending on the chosen track) with single and double degree options. The IPBS MGM involves studying in two countries and learning the skills to be a successful global leader in the digital age. The programme is taught entirely in English.
