  Getting started

Starting is easy: Browse our courses and select the courses you like from our course list here. During the checkout process, you will automatically create your personal student account. If you already have an account, you can simply log in and choose the courses from the list.

You can start your course right after the successful payment.

We packed all the important essentials in powerful short courses: Each course takes between 1 hour and 2 hours to complete. All of our courses are 100% online, self-paced and text-based (including lots of pictures, graphs and diagrams). You can find the duration per course on the course list here.

Our courses are designed for both students and non-students. Therefore, you need neither previous knowledge of management concepts nor any proof of academic record. All you need is a web browser and some motivation!

  Cost & Payment

Our online courses cost between $10 and $50. These costs include the course content as well as your personal certificate. There are no additional costs. You can find all prices here.

We do accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, etc.), major debit cards, or PayPal for your payment. Unfortunately we do not accept manual bank transfers.

All of our courses have to be paid upfront. You can start studying right after the successful payment.

There are various reasons why a payment may fail. Here are some error sources and solutions:

  • Check your entered credit card details for mistakes
  • Make sure there is enough money on your account
  • Use PayPal as alternative payment
  • Use another credit card

  Certificates & Diploma

To gain your personal certificate, you have to complete an online course and a quiz. All of our course quizzes are multiple-choice tests. Don’t worry – you can retake the test several times. Also, there is no time limit. You will receive your certificate as a digital file (pdf). We do not send hard copies.

The International Business Management Institute (IBMI) holds its online distance learning programs to the same high standards that are held by traditional educational institutions. Our certificates and diplomas are therefore highly recognized and accepted by many employers around the world. Please notice that we do not award academic titles. However, most institutions and organizations recognize the certificates as valid professional certificates.

To find and download all your certificates, simply log-in, select “My Account” and click on “My Certificates“.

If you complete 4 to 6 courses in a specific field, you will receive a program diploma without any additional fees. You can find these programs on our course list here.
