Our History

Business Education at its Best

Universities like to tout their past, and we’ll get to that, but first let’s talk about the future –specifically your future. The bottom line is, the world your parents (and for that matter most teachers) grew-up in, just isn’t the same anymore. The jobs they learned to train for either no longer exist, or exist in radically different forms.

Twenty years from now you don’t want to be old news; you want to be cutting edge. That’s what CIBU is all about. We don’t advocate ignoring the past; it’s the foundation upon which today’s exciting business enterprises are built. But you need to know how to use it to spring-forward and shine in our ever-changing world. That’s where CIBU excels.

That’s where you come in.

Our focus isn’t on making ourselves money –we’re a not-for-profit organization that is fully accredited- our focus is giving you the best possible international education. This means we keep our classes intimate and internationally focused. But you can read more about that on our Academic Programs page.
