The International Baccalaureate (IB) is synonymous with Switzerland. It was started in Geneva over 50 years ago and is an internationally recognised secondary school diploma equivalent to a Swiss Matura. It consists of an academic and extracurricular program. The IB enables students to study at a Swiss university or higher education institution and is also very popular at elite universities abroad.

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma enjoys an excellent reputation at universities in Switzerland and abroad due to the high academic requirements.
