Erie Business Center to Close Doors after 130 Years

Posted: Updated:

The longest standing business school in the area will close at year's end. Erie Business Center, first founded 130 years ago will cease all operations at its Erie and New Castle campuses December 31st.

A press release from the school is blaming "declining enrollment, increased competition and increasing government regulation."

The release goes on to say that the decision does not reflect the quality of the education there, pointing to the school's Practical Nursing Program that was ranked second in the state just this past May.

Administrators say they will work with similar schools throughout the region to ensure that underclassmen are able to complete their studies..
