Daily Ranking - Metroversities

Daily ranking via an oped in the Boston Herald - Top 10 Metro Areas impacted by higher education listed in: Education a Growth Industry. The Pittsburgh quote in it:
But the Pittsburgh Metroversity, ninth? It is powered by 120,000 students led by Carnegie-Mellon, Duquesne and by itself the University of Pittsburgh with its Medical Center that now employs 83,800 people and spends more than $2 billion in the community annually.
Without that, Pittsburgh would be hemorrhaging economically as would Cleveland without Case-Western or Richmond without Virginia Commonwealth. And the world is now turning to the “industry” of higher education/allied health.

Someone didn't get the Marcellus Shale impact memo?

Or about professional and business services, a nice source of growth both long-term and in the recovery.

Eds and Meds are undoubtedly big, but they aren't the only game in town.
