Workers at Education Management Corp. suffered a round of layoffs last week.
Corporate spokesman Tyler Gronbach would not say today just how many people were laid off, only that the reductions were less than 2 percent of the workforce, which would put the figure into the hundreds.
The company operates 110 campuses across the country. Mr. Gronbach said each of the campuses had job losses.
The Pittsburgh operations saw more cuts because EDMC has a larger presence here. In addition to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh campus, the company's corporate headquarters are also located Downtown.
The company will release its latest earnings after the stock market closes on Oct. 30.
