Career College Research Highlighted

The Link (Winter 2008) article "Taking Charge: Career College Helps New Generation Steer Careers" quotes BERC associate director Murat Arik: “Given the fact that private for-profit career colleges are racially more diverse, have more nontraditional students, and have programs reflecting demands in labor markets, the economic impact of these colleges on Tennessee’s economy goes well beyond the $330 million economic impact of their operations.”
