The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a group of three educational programmes, as established by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).

These three programmes are the following:

The programmes are modelled after educational systems from around the world, without being based on any particular one, incorporating both the breadth offered by some as well as the early specialisation offered by others. The Diploma Programme started in 1968 at the International School of Geneva, the Middle Years programme was introduced in 1994, and the Primary Years Programme in 1997. Their rigour and high standards have ensured their wide recognition throughout the world.[citation needed] As of 2006, the programmes are currently being taught to over 486,000 students.

The International Baccalaureate Programme is also a common misnomer used to refer to one of these programmes (most frequently the IB Diploma Programme). High schools often advertise that they offer the “International Baccalaureate Programme,” in which case it is obvious that they are referring to the DP as it is the only one of the three programmes intended for students of senior high school age.
