Institute of Technology Joins Select Education Group

What the new partnership means moving forward

On Aug. 8, 2014, Institute of Technology gained a new partner in National Holistic Institute, which formed a new company called Select Education Group that is the parent of all of the Institute of Technology Schools.  We couldn’t be more excited. This opportunity is a natural fit for both organizations, and one we feel great about moving forward.

To give you an idea about National Holistic Institute and why we’re excited about the partnership, let’s take a brief look back at its history.

History lesson: National Holistic Institute & Select Education Group
Founded originally as National Holistic Institute (NHI) in Emeryville, California, they gained a national reputation as a quality massage therapy school and grew steadily throughout the 1990s and 2000s.

After Mason Myers and Tim Veitzer purchased NHI from the school’s founder, they continued to expand, opening new campuses in California all the way through 2012. Today, NHI is one of the largest and most respected massage therapy schools in the world. The school is thoroughly committed to staying on the cutting edge of massage therapy education and preparing its students for their future careers – goals that line up directly with our mission here at IOT.

So how will this partnership affect our current and prospective students?

In the short term, it won’t affect our students at all. Institute of Technology is still focused on helping our students earn a quality education from experienced instructors in state-of-the-industry lab environments. In the long term, however, this newly formed partnership with NHI and Select Education Group will only strengthen our ability to deliver high-quality programs and services to our students. As the group grows, we hope to pass along some of the benefits that come with this growth.
