Levi & Korsinsky, LLP announces that it has commenced an investigation of DeVry Education Group Inc. ("DeVry Education Group" or the "Company") (NYSE:DV) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws by the Company and/or certain of its officers and directors.

On January 27, 2016, it was revealed that The U.S. Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit against DeVry University, alleging the company deceived students about their job prospects and potential pay rates after earning a degree at DeVry. The FTC has accused the school of deceptively claiming that 90% of DeVry graduates found work in their field within six months of graduation; the suit also alleges DeVry falsely claimed that its graduates "obtain jobs that pay significantly more than jobs that graduates of other colleges and universities obtain."
