Devry University News DeVry University Announces Plans to Open New Dayton Location; University to Offer Undergraduate and Graduate Degree Programs
April 20, 2006 — Dayton, Ohio — DeVry University, one of North America's leading career-oriented institutions for business, technology and management education, today announced plans to open a new location in Dayton this September.
DeVry University plans to offer bachelor's degree programs in business administration, technical management and computer information systems that can be completed in three years. It also will offer seven master's degree programs through its Keller Graduate School of Management.
Dayton is home to one of the highest concentrations of aerospace and high-technology firms in the nation, thanks in large part to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the research and development arm of the U.S. Air Force and the fifth largest employer in Ohio. Currently, more than 11,000 people in the greater Dayton area work in the information technology sector.
“There is a strong demand in Dayton for career-oriented education that provides students with skills that can be immediately applied in the workplace,” said Galen Graham, regional vice president of DeVry University. “With the thriving information technology community in Dayton, there is a need for degree programs that prepare students for careers at the intersection of business and technology”
While the technology industry is strong in Dayton, an education in technology does not limit graduates to careers at tech companies per se, continued Graham. “Technology is no longer just a sector of our economy, but an integral part of all 21st century organizations”
According to the Information Technology Association of America, non-IT companies remain the largest employer of IT workers in the United States, employing 10 times more IT professionals than technology companies.
DeVry University is regionally accredited and has been providing high-quality, career-oriented education in Ohio since 1952, with locations in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus. Since then more than 21,000 students have graduated from DeVry University locations in Ohio.
