Ibmec’s undergraduate and graduate programs in Business, Economics, Law, International Relations and Accounting were awarded the highest ranking in all the evaluations conducted by the Brazilian Ministry of Education.[1] The pioneering approach that guides the institution led to it becoming the first learning center in Brazil to offer an Executive MBA in Finance in the 1980s.

The MBA programs taught by the university are accredited by the London-based Association of MBAs (AMBA).

In 2015 Ibmec was acquired by DeVry,[2][3]which has been rebranded as Adtalem Global Education.
