International Business School

From a school that was founded in 1991 as the first private higher education college in Central Europe, International Business School has grown into a truly modern and dynamic business school.

Master's Programmes

Business & Management (1)
Computer Science & IT (1)



IBS opened its gates in 1991 welcoming students who wished to study business in English. The founders of the school had long term plans and thus they moved the college (practically run in some rented rooms of an office block) from Kelenföldi railway station to the second district, one of the most beautiful districts of Buda.


International Business School is a state-recognised leading private higher education institution accredited in Hungary and the United Kingdom, offering a multitude of degree and non-degree programmes related to business and management.

It is an attractive place to learn and teach because of our collaborative culture – a blend of academic rigor, cooperative teamwork, entrepreneurship, diversity and continuous innovation. The academic experience we offer is providing our students from over 100 countries of the world not only with an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, but skills and networking opportunities that bring lifelong competitive advantages.


One of the major functions of any Higher Education Institution is the development and transmission of knowledge and skills through research. Pursuant to this statement, IBS enables its staff and students to make full use of its resources to create a “research culture” consistent with its mission and aspirations.
