From the School

Education has become a prerequisite for meaningful careers. The technological advances that enhance our lives daily have also profoundly impacted nearly every employment field, making higher education once a luxury an essential step in a successful career path. With this in mind, DeVry provides career-oriented, technology-based education to high school graduates and working adults. Our more than 60 locations campuses and centers throughout the United States and in Canada, as well as our online operations, compose one of the largest private higher education systems in North America. Through its undergraduate and graduate curricula in technology, business and management, DeVry University serves some 52,000 students. DeVry's historical roots lie in the technical education movement of the early 1900s. In 1931, Dr. Herman DeVry established DeForest Training School in Chicago to prepare students for technical work in electronics, motion pictures, radio and, later, television. The name was changed to DeVry Technical Institute in 1953, and it became the flagship of the current system. Further campus name changes occurred in 1968, to DeVry Institute of Technology, and in 2002, to DeVry University. The DeVry system has expanded in curriculum and in degree offerings as well. In 1957, DeVry achieved associate-degree-granting status in electronics engineering technology and 12 years later was authorized to grant bachelor's degrees in the same discipline. Computer Science for Business (later renamed Computer Information Systems) was introduced in 1979 as DeVry's second bachelor's degree program. In response to growing demand for professionals with business and technology expertise, DeVry introduced its bachelor's degree programs in business and telecommunications in the 1980s. In 1994, DeVry launched its Technical Management curriculum, followed by the introduction of the Information Technology, Computer Engineering Technology and Network Systems Administration programs in 1998, 1999 and 2002, respectively. Additionally, three new program offerings were introduced in 2003 Biomedical Engineering Technology, Biomedical Informatics and Health Information Technology. Broadening its educational scope, in 1987 DeVry merged with Keller Graduate School of Management. Today, DeVry University's Keller offers master's degree programs in Business Administration, Accounting and Financial Management, Human Resource Management, Information Systems Management, Network and Communications Management, Project Management and Public Administration at locations nationwide as well as online. DeVry University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association (NCA), 30 North LaSalle Street, Chicago, Illinois, 60602, www.ncahigherlearningcommission.org, 800/621-7440. NCA is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a recognized accrediting association. Each member of the DeVry community remains committed to providing high-quality curricula and student services, and looks forward to helping you attain your personal and professional goals.
