Nestled in the Great Plains and bordered by the Missouri River, the Cornhusker State is a major national producer of beef, corn, pork and soybeans. Home to 20 private and public universities and colleges, Nebraska boasts one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation, at 3.6%.* Major colleges in Nebraska offer robust programs in agriculture and agribusiness, economics, and engineering to train students in fields where careers flourish in this Midwestern gem of a state.
In addition to several campuses of major institutions, the largest cities in Nebraska include Omaha and Lincoln, with populations of approximately 409,000 and 258,000, respectively.* They each foster small-but-mighty visual and performing art communities, minor league sports teams like the Omaha Storm Chasers, and cultural programs and events. Famed billionaire and philanthropist Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, calls Omaha home, so it’s probably a wise investment. And with headquarters in Omaha, major corporations, including ConAgra, TD Ameritrade, and Kiewit Corporation offer opportunities in manufacturing, information technology, insurance, transportation and telecommunications. Make your fortune to the wide-open Cornhusker State.Click Here to See the Best Colleges in the US*Bureau of Labor Statistics *Wikipedia, “Nebraska”, “List of colleges and universities in Nebraska”
