International Business College

International Business College opened doors for the first time in downtown El Paso in June of 1898. The prosperity of the school allowed the founder, Mr. J.P. Mullin, to make several moves to larger facilities until the school was purchased by J.E. Gilkey and moved to the Raynolds Building in 1922. IBC was first Accredited by the National Association of Commercial Schools in 1924. Currently the East Campus is classified by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools as additional locations of the West Campus.
