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, five of these partners offer an intensive 12 to 15 month (depending on the track choice) Masters of Science in International Management (MIM). The MIM features study in two countries and concentrates on the preparation of managers for the international business world. The programme is taught entirely in English.
The IPBS is dedicated to the development of a lifelong cross-cultural international community of business and management students, alumni, professors, researchers and staff, by sharing and increasing their professional knowledge, skills and understanding through international exchange programmes.
