Providing Quality Education, Research and Training since 1989


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. Institute of Business Studies (IBS) is a private Tertiary Educational Institution passionate about developing the human resources of Papua New Guinea.

We take pride in providing a conducive and supporting learning environment and make learning accessible to many fellow Papua New Guineans who wants to pursue and achieve their dreams by obtaining an international degree in the fields of Accounting, Marketing, Human Resource and Information Technology. The Institution has further forged strong partnerships and network with the industry and business world to provide practical exposure in terms of applying theory to practice. We also provide Employability Training, Recruitment Support and Campus Placement Process

The Institute continues to invest time in training & development by having a Career Development Centre (CDC) that spends more time in running skills development and practical training programs. The Institution has also collaborated and formed partnerships with many other international and local professional institutions such as the Southern Cross University in Australia, University of PNG, Australian Computer Society, Certified Practicing Accountants, Australia, Certified Practicing Accountants PNG, Prometric, Pearson Vue Australia.



We believe in making a difference by linking ourselves directly with the community. The influence of todays choices have a profound impact on the community tomorrow. Being "socially and culturally reponsible" helps us to conduct ourselves ethically with sensitivity whilst contributing to the development of people and nation.
