Coffee, Polaris and Carlson Companies (Radisson Hotels),
and the state ranks second only to California for medical technology industry employment, with a concentration three times
that of the nation. Additionally, with 32 being the approximate
median age, it’s evident that a young, proactive workforce will
fuel our industries for years to come.
Minneapolis Saint Paul has been voted a top city for intel-
ligent people (Travel + Leisure, 2012), one of the most literate
(Central Connecticut State College, 2013) and the No. 1 place
for families to live (ZipRealty, 2013).
Through the state’s open enrollment program, your child
can attend schools in districts outside of where you live. With
high test scores, high-ranking teachers and an abundance
of extracurricular activities, our public schools turn out well-rounded students ready for college. From the independent
perspective, private school options (there are more than 200
in the metro area) are plentiful here, with focuses ranging
from multicultural to college preparatory to religious studies,
producing dozens of National Merit Scholars and promoting
unconventional learning techniques.
With the University of Minnesota anchored between the
two downtowns, educational excellence seems central to the
makeup of the metro as a whole. The University of Minnesota
serves more than 60,000 undergraduate, postgraduate and
doctoral students at its four campuses—in Minneapolis
the University of Minnesota, there are 11 others, including
Macalester College, Hamline University, Augsburg College
and the University of St. Thomas. St. Catherine University,
located in Saint Paul, is the largest Catholic college for women
in the country.
Minneapolis Saint Paul residents have the health care system
to thank in part for their high quality of life. The Minneapolis
Saint Paul area ranked No. 1 on The American College of
Sports Medicine’s list of America’s Fittest Cities in 2013 and
in 2012 Minneapolis ranked No. 4 in the nation for health care
by The Commonwealth Fund. Minnesota enjoys top medical
facilities and a strong emphasis on access to health care and
medical technology. More than 8,000 health care companies
line Minnesota’s 350-mile-long “Medical Alley,” which begins
in Rochester and continues to northern Minnesota.
U.S. News and World Report ranked several of our hospitals—including St. John’s Hospital, Abbott Northwestern
and the University of Minnesota Medical Center—among
its Best Hospitals of 2013. The Mayo Clinic also made this
list—on its Honor Roll. Located just 80 miles away in the
southern Minnesota city of Rochester, the Mayo Clinic offers
residents easy access to one of the top medical institutions
in the world, one that’s cared for high-profile patients such
as former President Gerald Ford.
