Employers ranked IBS students higher in terms of knowledge and skills than students from other higher education institutions, according to the annual employer satisfaction survey.

Employers remarked on the 106 students who completed their professional internships during the survey, with a 98% response rate. They first gave feedback in three short text answers regarding the beginning and end of the placement period and the position fulfilled by the student. Following that, the interns' employee skills, attitudes, and knowledge were evaluated in comparison to students studying at various higher education institutions. The employers identified the students' primary skills and weaknesses and supplemented them with the required comments.

One of IBS’ popular career services is the job fair held on our campus, to which we invite exhibitors from among our key business partners. These exhibitors also provide us with feedback about the attendees of the job fair. Typically our business partners describe these students as interested and open-minded job seekers with very good languages capabilities and a level of motivation usually higher than those studying at other universities.
