Colleges and Universities in Kansas

Continuing your education at one of the more than 30 colleges and universities in Kansas could prove to be an advantage on your resume but also a boost to your wallet. After all, tuition and fees at the state's universities come in as much as 18 percent less than the regional average, according to a study by the Kansas Board of Regents. Plus, with a cost of living of almost 8.5 percent less than the national average, you'll want to stay here long after graduation. In fact, Kansas ranked No. 3 in Southern Business and Development magazine's 2010 "Top Deals and Hot Markets," which examines business recruitment and retention projects that create and/or retain jobs and capital investments.

After the diploma: Launching your career in Kansas

With strong fields in the areas of advanced manufacturing, bioscience, distribution and transportation, professional services, and renewable energy, building a career in Kansas couldn't come at a better time. Top-tier companies in these fields holding court in Kansas include Cessna, General Motors, J.P. Morgan and Cerner Healthcare. Per the May 2010 State Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, mean annual wages for employees in these fields were:

  1. Aerospace engineers: $90,420
  2. Air-traffic controllers: $114,460
  3. Animal scientists: $65,390
  4. Financial analysts: $79,970
