Non-Competition. During your employment with the Company and/or any of its subsidiaries and continuing for twenty-four (24) months thereafter, you shall not, in any way, directly or indirectly, either for yourself or any other person or entity, whether paid or unpaid, accept employment with, own, manage, operate, consult or provide expert services to any person or entity that competes with the Company or any of its subsidiaries in any capacity that involves any responsibilities or activities involving or relating to any Competing Educational Service, as defined herein. Competing Educational Service means any educational service that competes with the educational services provided by the Company and/or any of its subsidiaries, including but not limited to coursework in the areas of visual communication and design technologies; information technology; business studies; culinary arts; and health education, or any education service. You hereby acknowledge that the following organizations, among others, provide Competing Educational Services and, should you accept employment with, own, manage, operate, consult or provide expert services to any of these organizations, it would inevitably require the use and/or disclosure of Confidential Information and would provide such organizations with an unfair business advantage over the Company: Adtalem Global Education Inc. (formerly known as DeVry Education Group Inc.), American Public Education, Inc., Anthem Education, Apollo Education Group, Inc., Career Step, LLC, Cogswell Education, LLC, Delta Career Education Corporation, DeVry University, EmbanetCompass, Grand Canyon Education Inc., Kaplan, Inc., Keiser University, Laureate Education, Inc., Learning Tree International Inc., Lincoln Education Services Corporation, National American University Holdings Inc., Purdue University Global, Ross Education, LLC, South University, Southern New Hampshire University, Strategic Education, Inc. (formerly known as Strayer Education Inc.), Universal Technical Institute Inc., Zenith Education Group, Inc., Zovio Inc (formerly known as Bridgepoint Education, Inc.) and each of their respective subsidiaries, affiliates and successors. You further acknowledge that the Company and/or its subsidiaries provide career-oriented education through physical campuses throughout the United States and web-based virtual campuses throughout the world and, therefore, it is impracticable to identify a limited, specific geographical scope for this Section 16(e). Nothing herein shall prevent you from owning less than two percent (2%) of the capital stock of a company whose stock is publicly traded and that is engaged in Competing Educational Services.
