Accreditation & Partners

Accreditation & Partners

IBSUniversity maintains strong connections with corporate and academic organizations, both locally and internationally. We take pride in our educational partnerships and our supportive relationships with employers.

For more than 20 years, our learning partners and accreditations have guaranteed that our students receive thorough, hands-on training and qualifications that offer direct routes to employment and globally recognized skills.

IBS is an accredited provider of Microsoft training and CISCO courses, and an approved Pearson Vue test center.

In February of this year, IBSUniversity received ISO 9001 certification, making it the only academic institution in Papua New Guinea to be accredited with this prestigious award, which follows German standards. This accreditation sets a benchmark for IBSU to deliver education at ISO standards, particularly those of Germany’s educational framework of quality administration and operational systems and procedures.

Global University Partners

Since 1999, IBS has been offering Australian degree programs. Initially, the programs included Accounting and IT from Southern Cross University. Over time, the offerings have expanded to include both online and face-to-face Management courses.

In 2003, IBS became the first education provider to offer an MBA program in partnership with Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, with face-to-face classes in Papua New Guinea.

We are the sole examination center in PNG for Deakin University, University of New England, University of New South Wales, Monash University, University of Southern Queensland, Charles Sturt University, and the ACCA/CIMA exams in the UK.


Our university values its strong connections with the industry and employers. We take pride in our existing partnerships and our ability to recommend top graduates to businesses. We are also grateful for the support that partnering companies provide to our degree programs, through sponsorships and the time they invest in our students.
