IB global research into graduate outcomes and performance

Research is at the core of the IB, it is fundamental to the way the programmes are designed and assessed. The IBO conducts research and also works in partnership with leading universities and research institutions globally.  The IBO aims to share more of that research with students, parents and educations in the IB community and have organised some key global findings at the link below.  From China and Australia, to Turkey, Mexico, the US and more, the research content here has an overall focus on the following two questions about Diploma Programme graduates:

  • How do they fare in terms of university outcomes and performance?
  • What factors help IB students to succeed?
