IBS began in 1989 as an arm of Nades & Associates to provide accounting students with a structured revision program leading up to their professional exams. The college quickly grew into a private tertiary education provider, providing a pathway for Grade 10 +12 students who could not make national selection to become Australian degree holders in Accounting, Business & Information Technology.
This year, we celebrate 31 years of education in PNG.
IBS focuses on the success of every student by guiding them along their learning journey and into their desired career. Our programs range from certificate courses to degrees, diplomas and Australian degree courses.

The Centre of Excellence is engaged in developing the future leaders and managers of PNG via adventurous, intellectual and experiential learning.
