Reports Positive for Texas Businesses. Is Your Company Legally Poised for Success?
Even as other parts of the country have struggled with economic shifts and downturns, Texas has long been a top promoter of business growth. In fact, a recent study by the finance company WalletHub ranked the City of Austin’s economy as the fastest-growing among large cities in the United States.
Among big cities, Fort Worth and Corpus Christi also came in the top five, and in the rankings of cities of any size, nine of the top 10, including Round Rock, are Texas cities. The study looked at economic growth in more than 500 communities since the start of the recession in 2008.
Colleges and universities in Texas are also doing their part to lay the groundwork for business growth.
In addition to the high performance of city economies, business schools throughout Texas continue to be outstanding on a global scale. Recently, a report from Financial Times ranked University of Texas at Austin, Rice University, Southern Methodist University, Texas A&M and University of Houston among the top international business schools worldwide.
The rankings are based on salaries of alumni three years after graduating.
