International Business College to shut down in Fort Wayne by 2020

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – International Business College will stop accepting student applications and will “wind down” operations at its northeast Indiana campus over the next two years, school officials said in a statement posted online Tuesday.

The for-profit school, which focuses on courses in technology, business and health care, said current students will be able to complete their studies before the doors close.

The shut-down adds to a growing list of such colleges that have ceased operations locally. Brown Mackie College and Harrison College are among the others.

IBC cited declining enrollment in Fort Wayne as the main reason for the move. It said it would invest in its growing operation in Indianapolis.

Published figures put recent enrollment in Fort Wayne at fewer than 500 students.
