San Antonio continues to receive kudos from Forbes magazine. Thanks to a strong local economy (and a strong state economy to support it) and a new wealth of restaurants and nightlife choices, San Antonio has become a top destination for college graduates. In Forbes list of “Cities Gaining the Most College Graduates,” San Antonio took the top spot along with New Orleans. Between 2007 and 2012, San Antonio brought in 76,331 college graduates, a gain of 20.3%.
Also making the list in Texas were Austin at #3 (adding 94,939 graduates, a 19.9% gain) and Houston (adding 185,012 graduates, a 16% gain). Where there are college graduates, there are opportunities for new businesses, so with reports like these coming out, we expect to see continued growth for Texas.
