Best Colleges in Minneapolis

“The Twin Cities” experienced so much growth that they grew into one major area. You, too, can have the same opportunities to grow in your own education here in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Over 30 schools offer hundreds of degree options with interests, such as journalism, medicine, and law.* Minneapolis-St. Paul has one of the largest economies in the Midwest and is home to the headquarters of 18 Fortune 500 companies providing jobs after graduation. As one of the “Best Places for Business and Careers” and status as one of the largest medical device manufacturing centers, business and healthcare majors are finding themselves right at home.* To top it all off, the area has the lowest unemployment rate in the country, 4.2%, for large metropolitan areas.*

Not only is the education top notch, but there’s twice the fun, too. Minnesota is known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” with plenty of recreation in the water. Many trails border the lakes and provide scenic paths for running or hiking. The Greenway and Hiawatha are two of the most popular.* There are 7 professional sports teams to give you opportunities to show your city pride: Vikings, Twins, Wild, Timberwolves, Lynx, Swarm, and United FC.* So, for football or futbol, you’re covered. As the third largest theater market, it’s a great destination for concerts and shows.* We won’t even dwell on the 5,000+ restaurants or 400+ bars in and around downtown Minneapolis-St. Paul.* While good individually, they’re better together. Come grow, and double your success in the Twin Cities.
