Research plays a central role in the development, quality assurance, and
assessment of impact of IB programs and services. The IB both
conducts its own research and partners with leading universities and
research institutions across the world.
"A common thread that emerged from participant life
stories was that the IB has the potential to powerfully shape the lives
of students who participate in its programs."
