International Business School, the founding partner of Spark Institute offers Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Budapest and Vienna. 

We hold strong focus on practice-oriented education and find it fundamental to forge partnerships with corporations and our Alumni in the business community. Partners and collaborators of IBS include large multinational companies as well as small businesses, the not-for-profit sector, and non-governmental organisations at national and regional levels. 

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.

"We firmly believe that internationalisation is more than a market-driven necessity. Rather, it is an opportunity to provide intercultural education for our students with the resulting academic, cultural, intellectual and emotional gains in terms of their personal growth, sense of identity, self-esteem, life quality, openness and tolerance vis-a-vis others. We at IBS recognise and respect innovative curricula, modes of delivery and best practice developed by others in Europe and beyond." 

Dr. László LÁNG, Rector
