How can the country’s 15th most populated city and the largest city in the country’s seventh most populated state be considered a best-kept secret? When it’s Columbus, Ohio.
Praise for Columbus keep rolling in:
1. NPR calls it “a nearly recession-proof hub of Ohio” that’s attracting young professionals with a low cost of living and diverse economy.
2. CNBC tags Columbus as “a growing mecca for small business,” with a supportive community of business leaders working together for the benefit of all.
3. Money says Columbus is “making the Midwest cool,” with affordable housing within reach of a vibrant downtown.
And yet, when considering it as a destination for earning an MBA and launching a new career, many future MBA students count Columbus out.
