President’s Message

There are significant shifts in the environment which are redefining the future of business education. The demand for competencies in creativity, flexibility, and adaptability are becoming the most pervasive. The exponential pace of change is creating a need for innovative partnerships and approaches to delivering relevant responses in business education. The International Partnership of Business Schools (IPBS) is preparing students for this shift through a global education like no other.

IPBS is a community of international scholars educating students through a closely aligned network of respected business schools spanning the globe. IPBS leverages the strengths of our partnered business schools in delivering global experiences through work and study abroad.

Students who study abroad in our joint programs return with an increased level of curiosity, decisiveness, confidence, tolerance, and the ability to solve complex problems. As well, students return home as ambassadors to the schools, communities, and countries where they studied and lived.

Become part of our IPBS network by entering any of the double degree programs offered among the partners and begin your truly global and transformational experience.
