IB Career-related Programme

IB Career-related Programme





The IB Career-related Programme (IBCP) is for students aged 16 to 19 and provides a Pre-University pathway that is based on educational principles, vision, and the learner profile of the IB, in a unique programme that addresses the needs of students who wish to follow a targeted course pathway. The primary objective is that the IBCP will prepare students for further studies at the tertiary level, or move towards a career.

The Career-related Programme enables students to:

  • combine academic subjects with their personal and professional interests and skills
  • communicate clearly and effectively in a variety of situations
  • demonstrate high levels of resilience, flexibility, and agility of mind
  • think critically and creatively
  • consider new perspectives and other points of view
  • engage in learning that makes a positive difference to their community
  • develop greater self-confidence and self-awareness
  • apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios and situations
  • work independently and in collaboration with others
  • follow their chosen education and career pathways in life
  • be internationally-minded and globally aware

At SIS Sunway Iskandar, our planned IB Career-related Programme is a highly focused in the area of Business Studies. We will work closely with students and families to choose their additional Diploma courses, tailored around their needs, objectives, and academic pathways.


Curriculum Overview 

In the Business Career Pathway students take business specific courses; Intro to Business, Intro to Marketing, Research Skills, IT for Business, Intro to Human Resources, and Economics and Accounting

All students take four interrelated components from the CP Core. The CP core focuses on academic and practical skills while providing a bridge between DP courses and career-related study. 

Personal and Professional Skills

Personal and Professional Skills is a course designed for students to develop attitudes, skills and strategies to be applied to personal and professional situations and contexts related to their career study.

Service Learning

In Service Learning students undertake a service initiative of their own choosing related to their career study utilizing the skills and knowledge they have developed in their studies. The initiative must address a community need.

Reflective Project

The Reflective Project is an in-depth body of work produced over an extended period of time and submitted towards the end of the CP. Students choose an ethical issue related to their career related study and investigate the issue. The reflective project is intended to promote research, writing and communication skills.

Language Development

All CP students must study an additional language. Again the focus of the language learning is to relate the language to their career path that will assist and further their understanding of the career and the uses of the language. The ability to communicate in more than one language is essential to the IB’s concept of an international education.

Diploma Programme Courses

Additionally CP students take two DP courses from our current courses on offer including; English, Mandarin, Malay, Business Management, Economics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Math or Visual Arts
