College Station is ranked seventh on NerdWallet’s list of the Top 10 Texas Cities on the Rise, which was announced Monday.
NerdWallet, a consumer finance company, considered population, employment and income growth in its calculations.
The report cited College Station for its ties to Texas A&M’s Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing, the relocation of Cognizant Technology Solutions, the Research Valley Innovation Center, and the fact that the city recently passed the 100,000-population mark.
“Businesses are coming to Texas in droves, hiring new employees and raising salaries for existing workers,” NerdWallet’s Maggie Clark wrote. “Because of the migration and job growth, the Dallas-San Antonio-Austin economy now produces more than $700 billion in economic output per year, ranking among the biggest 25 economies in the world.”
