In 2013, Kiplinger's ranked Dubuque No. 10 on its list of "Great Places to Live" in the U.S. Kiplinger's cited the Smithsonian-affiliated National River Museum and Aquarium, the Grand River Convention Center, the thriving businesses and shops in a restored 19th-century downtown, along with economic prosperity as the reasons for Dubuque's inclusion on the list. This economic prosperity equates to internships, the ability for post-graduation hires and an infusion of professionals to serve as resources for you. Here's just a glimpse of the opportunities that await:
- IBM chose Dubuque as the home for its technical services delivery center – bringing 1,300 jobs to downtown.
- Hormel Foods recently built a new $90 million processing plant, joining industry leader John Deere Dubuque Works in the manufacturing sector.
- McGraw-Hill Higher Education publishing, Prudential Financial, McKesson Corporation, FlexSteel, Heartland Financial and Medline are among the national and international companies who call Dubuque home
- The Dubuque Museum of Art complements a vibrant arts community that is full of galleries, exhibitions, public art projects and creative agencies
- An award-winning hospital and a medical center with the prestigious magnet designation anchor a robust healthcare sector
