I'm just starting to learn thermodynamics. I was just wondering that in case of a mixture of two gases, if we assume that each gas behaves as a ideal gas, does it imply that the mixture will also behave as an ideal gas? Or do we have to state it separately while making assumptions in our problem?

Yes the mixture is also considered ideal but also look at partial pressures.
