Talent is like life itself; it must be nurtured and fed in order to blossom. Fortunately for all the young sprouts in Cleveland, this region is blessed with quality institutions, including those of higher learning. Recognized nationally as leaders in such fields as Biomedical Sciences, Engineering, Industrial Design, Urban Affairs and Nonprofit Management, schools like Case Western Reserve, John Carroll, Cleveland State, University of Akron and Kent State are seeding the future with resume-rich wunderkinds. As one of Northeast Ohio's top employment sectors, higher education provides the region with an economic boost to the tune of $3 billion. Some 180,000 students are enrolled in area colleges, and it is likely some of those very students who will provide Cleveland with tomorrow's economic boost.
