Colleges and Universities in Missouri

Colleges and universities in Missouri have a lot to offer in terms of educational opportunities. The state itself, known for barbecue, beer and professional sports, is a good place to be for the college years and beyond. What more could a 20-something want? St. Louis has been ranked one of the top 100 places to live in the U.S., the 15th best city for young professionals, and one of the nation's best cities for singles. And, over the last decade, it's experienced a population boom in college-educated young adults.

The state of Missouri is also thriving economically, with careers in agribusiness, business, energy and bioscience, in particular, experiencing exponential growth. In 2011, there were 11 Missouri-based companies on the Fortune 500 list, including pharmacy benefit management leader Express Scripts, Emerson Electric and the Reinsurance Group of America. Students at colleges in Missouri who are studying business, defense, life sciences, information technology and transportation/logistics could find job prospects that deliver.

Where colleges in Missouri could lead you

Today, Ford, Daimler Chrysler and General Motors have assembly plants in Missouri. Additionally, alternative energy is a major industry; the state has four ethanol plants. A state initiative committed to making Missouri a national leader in biosciences means that careers in this industry could grow rapidly in the coming years. Missouri's finance sector is also an area experiencing growth. According to 2010 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mean earned wages for workers in some of the growing careers in Missouri were:

  1. Accountants and auditors: $59,980
  2. Biomedical engineers: $59,550
  3. Bookkeeping, accounting and auditing clerks:$32,580
  4. Computer support specialists: $44,140
  5. General and operations managers: $92,270
  6. Network systems and data communication analysts:$67,720
  7. Physicians and surgeons:$161,840

In 1904, St. Louis hosted the World Fair, where innovations like the electrical outlet and plug, the electrical typewriter, and the ice cream cone first debuted. Missouri's history is one of looking to the future--and with an education from Missouri colleges and universities, you could build a future there too.
