IBR Institute of International Business Relations

Since its establishment, the IBR Institute of International Business Relations in Germany has been a trailblazer in reimagining and reevaluating traditional academic education. In the course of more than 25 years, IBR has emerged as a pioneer in innovatively designing and offering work-integrated degree programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctorate levels. It has also excelled in creating the most customer-oriented and personalized service infrastructure.

IBR serves as a pioneering partner for innovation, collaborating with multiple universities and business communities worldwide. Together with our partner institutions IBR is actively engaging with the next generation. Its deliberate commitment extends to including those who are often overlooked, underprivileged, and disadvantaged, ensuring that IBRs education remains affordable, accessible, and relevant to all.

IBR has made a significant impact on the lives of countless individuals across the globe. With the dedication of an exceptional faculty team, IBR has accomplished this through the implementation of its Global MBA, an exceptional educational programme that places students at the forefront and empowers them to realise their potential, ultimately enabling them to make valuable contributions towards creating a better world.

IBR is enthusiastic about the thriving doctoral research community within its Global PhD programme. Top researchers embark on this journey from various locations, spanning from the United States in the West to Singapore in the East, and from Germany and Ukraine in the North to South Africa in the South. They benefit from unparalleled mentoring throughout the process and the application of their research findings to enhance businesses, non-governmental organizations, industries, societies, and even entire nations. The ultimate goal is to promote and establish concepts of human flourishing.

And one more “thing”: IBR's Global Bachelor programmes. Developed in partnership with Albstadt-Sigmaringen University in Germany and Kairos University in the United States, these programmes are set to be as innovative as our Master and Doctorate programs. They are inherently international in their approach and, like our other offerings, are designed to integrate work experience for the benefit of high school graduates from around the world.
