What are the opportunities for growth?

The nation's economy is inextricably tied to technology. Educated and skilled workers will remain in high demand, and prospective students will continue to be attracted by the wages and upward mobility associated with employment in fields of technology. Experts also project that the number of new jobs that require a college degree or some college will increase significantly.

What are your plans to continue company growth?

We developed a Growth Plan, which we have been implementing in the recent past. The elements of the Plan are as follows:

1. Increase enrollment in existing programs offered at existing colleges.

2. Open new college locations.

3. Open learning sites to supplement enrollment growth at existing locations.

4. Raise the program offerings to the bachelor degree level at additional colleges.

5. Develop and offer new degree programs in various fields of technology.

6. Research, develop and offer non-technology degree programs.

7. Increase the number of degree programs offered entirely online via distance education.

8. Seek international growth opportunities.

9. Evaluate the potential of offering non-degree programs of study.

What is a typical student’s schedule at an ITT Technical Institute?

Most of the programs at the ITT Technical Institutes are offered on a “quarter system.” New classes are formed approximately every 13 weeks. Students attend classes year-round with convenient breaks provided throughout the year. In most programs, classes are typically offered in four- to five-hour sessions. Some programs have classroom-based classes three days per week, while others have classroom-based classes two days per week with the third day of instruction offered online. Classes are generally available in the morning, afternoon and evening, depending on student enrollment.

What is the company’s history?

ITT/ESI is a Delaware corporation incorporated in 1946. From 1966 until the initial public offering on December 27, 1994, ITT/ESI was a wholly-owned subsidiary of ITT Corporation. Following the IPO, ITT held approximately 83% of ITT/ESI’s common stock. In February 1998, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. acquired ITT. Public offerings of ITT/ESI common stock by ITT in June 1998 and February 1999 and ITT/ESI’s repurchase of 1.5 million shares of ITT/ESI common stock from ITT in February 1999 completely eliminated ITT’s beneficial ownership.
