Higher Education in Arizona Colleges

Arizona's industry was historically centered around the five C's; copper, cattle, cotton, citrus, and climate (tourism), and this fact rings true to this day. The allure of the state's huge desert landscape and the majestic Grand Canyon make this a highly-desired location for nature lovers. The city rising from the desert, Phoenix, is rapidly expanding, and becoming a hub for major technology employers. It is slowly becoming a mini Silicon Valley.

Higher education in Arizona is mainly centered within Phoenix and the surrounding metro area. The University of Arizona boasts a nationally-ranked business school, in its Eller MBA program. Some major corporations with major centers in Arizona include Intel, PetSmart, Apollo Group, and Honeywell, among many others. These companies seek talented individuals who graduated from Arizona's capable higher education system.
