(FORT WAYNE) — A private business college is closing its Fort Wayne campus after 130 years, citing declining enrollment in the northeastern Indiana city.
International Business College says it has stopped accepting new students but school officials say current students can complete their programs in Fort Wayne and graduate by next February.
The for-profit college says in a statement that it is “winding down in Fort Wayne” and says the decision to close the Fort Wayne campus was difficult. The campus had opened in 1889 in Indiana’s second-largest city.
School officials plan to invest in renovations and staffing at its growing Indianapolis campus.
The Journal Gazette reports that according to the National Center for Education Statistics the Fort Wayne campus had 244 students, mostly women, in fall 2017.
