Although Milwaukee houses just short of 20 colleges and universities, a recent study ranked it 6th on a list of US cities with the highest number of college students per 100 residents.* Popular job prospects look to be in the field of construction, manufacturing, transportation, and retail, so degrees in construction, engineering, and business will open numerous careers options for you.* In 2009, Fortune Magazine’s list of “World Most Admired Companies” named 5 Milwaukee companies leaders in their industries. Republic Airlines, wind and solar equipment manufacturer, Ingeteam, and train manufacturer, Talgo are planning to add 1200 new jobs to the Milwaukee area. In the last year alone, there has been a 62.4% increase in jobs.* In fact, the Brew City has maintained a below average unemployment rate for the last 30 years!*
Milwaukee earned its nicknames, “The Brew,” and “Brewtown,” when it was once home to the four largest beer breweries, producing more beer than any other city in the world.* Today, Miller Brewing Company and Leinenkugel’s Brewery are two of the more popular companies still intact and currently operating.* Residents flock to Lake Michigan and Milwaukee River to enjoy sailing, windsurfing, and other water activities.* You might also enjoy visiting “The Pabst Mansion” or the Harley Davidson museum. Voted as the 5th best US city in which to retire, and the 2nd safest largest metropolitan area, you may come for your degree, but you’ll decide to settle down and stay once you’re here!**Wikipedia, “Milwaukee” *city-data.com *milwaukeedowntown.com *businessweek.com *bizjournals.com *Milwaukee 7
