Kaplan University, a provider of online education services, will open a
new online student support center in Orlando, Florida, according to a
company statement. The company will create up to 750 new jobs over the
next four years with the project. Kaplan will open the new facility in
a 124,000-square-foot existing facility in the Central Florida Research
Park. "Kaplan has experienced explosive growth over the last several
years, making it necessary for us to look for additional space to house
our employees," says Andrew S. Rosen, Kaplan University's president.
"We looked at 20 different cities and decided that the Orlando site was
the best fit for the university because of its affordable cost of
living and great labor pool." The Iowa-headquartered company did not
release information about state or local financial incentives.
