"Kansas City is a natural market for The Art Institutes," said John Mazzoni, president of The Art Institutes. "Our new location in Kansas will be a destination for residents in the Midwest to receive a quality education in culinary, design, and media arts, and we are looking forward to being an important partner in its educational community."

Initially, The Art Institutes International Kansas City will offer bachelor's degree programs in Advertising, Culinary Arts, Digital Filmmaking & Video Production, Fashion Marketing, Graphic Design, Interior Design, and Web Design & Interactive Media; and associate's degree programs in Culinary Arts and Graphic Design.

"I am looking forward to growing our institution in the Kansas City area, to serve a broad audience of students and employers through our programs in the creative arts," said Susanne Behrens, newly appointed president of The Art Institutes International Kansas City.

The Art Institutes International Kansas City is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools. The Kansas Board of Regents has approved The Art Institutes International Kansas City to operate in the State of Kansas.

The parent company of The Art Institutes, Education Management LLC with approximately 96,000 students as of the fall of 2007, is among the largest providers of post-secondary education in North America, based on student enrollment and revenue.
