The Economic Times recognizes the IB in Best Education Brands 2020 report for its support within India's education sector(2)

The Economic Times recently released their Best Education Brands of 2020 annual report, recognizing The International Baccalaureate (IB) for its positive contribution, advancement and innovation within the educational sector in India, which is home to approximately 1.13 billion students and serves one of the largest and youngest populations in the world.

The IB is proud to have received recognition for its Diploma Programme (DP), Career-related Programme (CP) and Middle-Years Programme (MYP). IB programmes have been taught in India since 1976, and today 274 universities across India – including top universities such as University of Delhi – recognize them. 

The IB offers programmes designed to build life skills and confidence for our students, focusing on languages and global values, which are all highly valued by schools across the world. Creating such awareness for professional development and multi-cultural diversity, it allows IB students to grasp a more thorough understanding of the world around them; something important and valuable within the in-culture of India. 

"IB learners emerge from the programmes as multilingual thinkers who can comfortably live, work and make a difference in the world over. The IB enables students to direct their own learning in a way traditional education cannot allow." - The Economic Times, Best Education Brands 2020. 

The IB continues to strive for a better world through education, and we would like to thank The Economic Times for acknowledging and supporting us on our mission.  

"In the world today, we have the biggest generation of children and young people ever recorded. This means that education, is our greatest hope for a prosperous future. As new global challenges emerge from an unprecedented pace of change, an IB education, becomes more relevant and necessary than ever before." – Dr Siva Kumari, Director General at the IB.  

The IB supports the education of more than 1.95 million students aged 3-19, in over 5,284 schools, across 152 countries and its programmes continue to grow internationally throughout public and private educational sectors.
