Make the smart choice to build the future you want...

The Community - Worcester, MA
All great cities share certain traits - a vibrant, undeniable energy and culture that drives their growth and characterizes their livability. They are easily accessible and welcoming to business and families alike. With strong roots in a proud past, great cities also are progressive - innovating, collaborating, busy building their own successful future. Worcester, a five-time recipient of the All-American City Award, offers its residents the resources and exciting attractions of a metropolis, balanced with the more intimate, livable scale of a mid-size city. One is hard pressed to find another city of comparable size with a greater concentration of world-class colleges and universities. Worcester, with its population of 181,045, is home to 9 colleges and universities (a half-dozen more in neighboring communities), including the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, College of the Holy Cross, Clark University, MCPHS University and Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

Thirty-eight percent of all jobs in the city are in the education and medical fields. Over 36 percent of residents between the ages of 25 and 34 have a bachelors or post-graduate degree, placing Worcester among the leaders of all New England cities. Worcester is a smart city. Smart students choose Worcester for its quality colleges and universities - and for the proximity to some of the world's most innovative companies. Smart companies choose Worcester for the students, who fuel the engine of the city's strong economy - as consumers and as industrious, inventive and energetic employees. This unusual concentration of intellectual capital and proximities to the best medical facilities and teaching hospitals - combined with streamlined business siting and permitting, robust economic development programs and strong political support - has helped Worcester to become a world-renowned center for research and development in biotechnology and the life sciences. The men and women who work at these companies and colleges - health care professionals, researchers, educators, business professionals and hundreds of small business owners - also make up the families that are the heart of Worcester's many safe and close-knit neighborhoods.

With its affordable housing... quality public schools... access to diverse and highly-acclaimed arts, sports, restaurants and entertainment... reliable local and regional public transportation... Worcester truly is a city that offers its residents, and resident businesses, the best of both large and small cities.

A smart city to support your vision and goals. A smart choice to build your future.
