Career Education Corporation, a major for-profit chain, announced Thursday that it is selling Brooks Institute to gphomestay, a company that works on international student programs at high schools and colleges in the U.S.
The California-based Brooks Institute is a visual and media arts institution that offers undergraduate and master's degrees. It enrolls roughly 500 students and has campuses in Santa Barbara and Ventura.
Career Education said last month that it would sell or close everything but its Colorado Technical University and American InterContinental University holdings as part of a broad restructuring and an effort to "rightsize." Colorado Technical and American InterContinental enroll about 34,000 of the company's 45,000 students.
