History

BIBS was founded by DIAS (Direct Investment Promotion Services). As a Swiss private company DIAS has been providing services in Management and Business Consulting, Management Training and Coaching and Higher Education since 2006.

 In 2006 DIAS developed and launched a distance-learning and part-time MSc programme in "Investment Promotion and Economic Development" (IPED) in co-operation with the Edinburgh Napier University in Scotland.

In 2013 DIAS developed and launched a new distance-learning and part-time MSc programme in "International Trade and Investment" (ITAI) in co-operation with The British University in Egypt (BUE).

The co-operation in both cases was excellent and successful. Numerous students all over the world have been recruited, studied and graduated and have expressed their full satisfaction about the quality and usefulness of the programmes. The joint teams of DIAS and the Universities have operated and coordinated very well.

As a response to the increasing demand for specialised training workshops in specific subjects related to international business and management DIAS has established BIBS to develop and deliver such. These are developed on the basis of the large experience, knowledge and networks gained by DIAS from the global delivery of postgraduate educational programmes.
