Institute of Business Studies (IBS) is a private Tertiary Education Institution passionate to enrich lives through world class education, training and research since 1989 in Papua New Guinea.
There are five specialist areas at IBS. These are Careers, College, Excellence, IBSUniversity & Excellence. Use the menu at the top to learn more about each area.
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 IBS Centre of Excellence provides outbound training through physically demanding, intellectually stimulating and experiential learning programs.
The Centre of Excellence is engaged in developing the future leaders and managers of PNG via adventurous, intellectual and experiential learning.
The Career Development Centre (CDC) of IBS is designed to ensure effective training and upskilling of IBS students. The centre focuses on industry trends, applications and processes in the areas of Accounting, Information Technology, Marketing and Human Resources.
