Why take classes at International Business Institute instead of a community college? IBI is a premier provider of online business-based education. Our programs are more thorough and rigorous than what is commonly available. For instance, one of our key partners provides the curriculum to over 1,800 colleges and universities in the United States. We, like the other schools, also utilize their curriculum. However, that is only a portion of the course. Each course also includes advanced leadership training (module 2), business case studies (module 3), and personal development (module 4). While community colleges may be a good option for some, IBI offers a more comprehensive and effective solution, focusing not only on learning the specific skill but also on developing the leadership and personal discipline necessary to fully apply the knowledge.
