Podcast Overview: Since its introduction in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) has seen widespread adoption throughout the world, with over 3,600 schools in 146 countries now utilizing its curriculums in the classroom. The challenging programmes are well known for their high quality of education, and enrolled students, like those at THINK Global School, are cultivated into independent learners with advanced critical thinking skills over the course of their IB education.
