About US


The Institute of Business Studies was established in 1989 with the primary objective to provide revision classes for the professional examinations conducted by the Papua New Guinea Institute of Accountants (PNGIA) since there was none available for the Accounting Graduates. Today we have contributed more graduates in this profession. Over the years our Vision has changed to give the opportunity to school leavers who were rejected by the formal education system.
