Small class sizes
Typically, when we think of undergraduate business classes, we picture large lecture halls where you’re just a face in a sea of students. This is not the case at IBU. Classes are limited to only 30 students! This means that you’ll get to know your professor and classmates well and be able to make valuable connections.
AT IBU, we believe in the education we provide to you, and that’s why we’ve created a unique financial aid program to eliminate the stress of school costs while you study.
For a limited number of eligible domestic students, up to 100% of your tuition and book payments will be deferred until you are employed after graduating. You can even have 25% of your total financial aid waived if you graduate with an average CGPA of 4.0 and up.
IBU offers a one-year grace period after your graduation where you won’t have to make payments during that time, or until you begin working. IBU’s financial aid program is interest-free, meaning you will only pay back the total tuition and book cost during your degree.
