Great Minds Think Atlanta

With more than 250,000 students enrolling in Atlanta colleges each year, it’s no wonder the city is home to some of the highest-ranking universities in America — earning a spot on Forbes’ 2017 "Best Cities for Young Professionals" list.

With 57 colleges and universities to choose from, Atlanta is fertile ground for young entrepreneurs, engineers, creatives and more.

Simply scratch the surface of the city’s bustling college community and you’ll see why names like Alice Walker, Spike Lee, Julia Roberts and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. chose Atlanta for higher education. The city boasts Emory University, Georgia Tech and nearby University of Georgia as its own. Offering opportunities in nearly every creative disclipline, in 2018 the cutting-edge Savannah College of Art and Design was named the nation's top architecture and design school by DesignIntelligence.

Often considered a "Southern Ivy,"  Emory University is a leader in medicine, technology and scientific research.

Atlanta also offers a wealth of unparalleled internships and networking opportunities, including opportunities at Fortune 500s and major companies like Coca-Cola, Adult Swim and Cartoon Network, CNN and General Electric.

Atlanta offers 1,800 distinct degree paths at colleges both big and small, lined by urban streets or sprawling green quads. Whether you prefer the studious environment of Georgia Tech, the historic prestige of Morehouse and Spelman, or empowering women’s colleges like Agnes Scott College and Brenau University, the ideal college experience is waiting for you in Atlanta.

Located in the heart of downtown, Georgia State University and its vibrant student population is transforming Atlanta.

Earning your degree is just the beginning. Atlanta ranks seventh in the nation for most degrees earned, and the average income for graduates 25 and older is $50,000. When you add in the low cost of living, high quality of life and more than 150,000 businesses that call this city home, it’s easy to see how choosing Atlanta can jumpstart your career.
