With nicknames like the Arch City, the Biggest Small Town in America and the Buckeye City, Columbus, Ohio, is also the Little Big City growing on the Scioto River. It’s a truly diverse area offering all four seasons, distinct neighborhoods and all kinds of people, from families to indie artists and professional athletes. Ordered the 15th largest city in the United States, Columbus keeps expanding, focused on education and career opportunities.

Home to the Buckeyes, Ohio State University offers some of the country’s top-rated veterinary, pharmacy, psychology and education programs. For sports fans, the city boasts professional hockey and soccer teams — the Blue Jackets and the Crew. If you’d rather participate than spectate, Columbus has plenty of recreational physical activities, from biking to snowboarding or zip-lining. If you don’t have a bike but wish you did, the CoGo bike share program has 30 stations and more than 300 bikes available 24 hours every day of the year! Don’t forget, either, that Jack Hanna’s Columbus Zoo is the top zoo in the nation.

Columbus is known as a very affordable headquarters city, too. Employment tends toward business, including banking, finance, insurance, retail and healthcare. JP Morgan Chase has its headquarters here, is the area’s largest employer and maintains a working relationship with the university. Other companies headquartered here include Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, Limited Brands, White Castle and Bob Evans Farms. Little wonder, then, that Businessweek.com listed Columbus as one of the top cities for business and careers.

Offering a low cost of living — 20% below the national average — and a host of amenities and opportunities, this little big city with its population of 830,000 is determined to keep growing. If you want a place where you can leverage learning into a business opportunity, Columbus may be for you.
