A Robust Pipeline
The Cincinnati region, including Northern Kentucky, is home to a skilled and educated young workforce. With prominent public and private academic centers such as Northern Kentucky University, Xavier University, University of Cincinnati, Miami University, Thomas More University and Gateway Community & Technical College, our region is teaming with talent. Each year, more than 393,000 students graduate within a 200-mile radius of Northern Kentucky and more than 1.1 million adults live within a 30-minute commute of Northern Kentucky. (Source: JobsEQ)
