Another For-Profit College Closing
FORT WAYNE - International Business College has announced plans to shut down its Fort Wayne campus. In a notice posted on its website, the for-profit college cited declining enrollment as the reason for the decision.
Current students will have the opportunity to complete their programs in Fort Wayne and graduate by the end of February 2020, according to the statement. The school says enrollment at its main campus in Indianapolis has grown and therefore it plans to invest in new renovations and staffing at that location.
The Fort Wayne campus offers programs in accounting, medical assistance, retail management, veterinary technology, and tourism, hospitality and event management. The school says career services assistance will be available for graduates in Fort Wayne through April 2020.
The full statement reads:
Over time, enrollment at our Indianapolis main campus has grown, while enrollment at our Fort Wayne branch location has declined. We thus have made the difficult decision to no longer accept new enrollments in Fort Wayne, while investing in new renovations and staffing in Indianapolis.
All current students in Fort Wayne will have the opportunity to complete their programs in Fort Wayne and graduate by the end of February 2020. Graduates seeking career services assistance will be able to utilize our Fort Wayne staff through April 2020 and our Indianapolis staff thereafter.
We are proud of our long history, and we look forward to the next chapter for IBC.
