EBC's New Castle Campus, formerly New Castle Business School, is located at 170 Cascade Galleria in New Castle, Pa. The Erie Campus is located at 246 West Ninth Street in Erie, Pa. EBC is the area's longest established career training institution. We offer both associate in specialized business (ASB) and diploma programs in a number of career fields. Erie Business Center is a progressive private institution offering programs of higher education that give people the opportunity to prepare themselves for careers in business, computer, secretarial, medical and legal fields. We are large enough to provide varied course offerings, yet small enough to give each student personal attention.
