Kaplan Acquires Pro Linguis


Kaplan has acquired Switzerland-based educational services provider Pro Linguis. The company joins several other European-based outfits recently acquired by Kaplan, including Financial Training Company, Dublin business School, and Aspect Education, among others.

"As the educational landscape becomes increasingly global in scope, we will continue to seek opportunities to expand our portfolio of offerings to students in Europe and beyond," said John Polstein, CEO of Kaplan's test prep division, in a prepared statement. "As a top quality educational services provider with an established reputation within an important European market, Pro Linguis represents an ideal partner in these efforts."

According to Kaplan, Pro Linguis will operate under the company's test prep division and will add to the more that 100 million students served annually, in 36 countries.
