Miami is moving up in global and national rankings:

  •  Miami ranks number 7 in the 2014 Knight Frank Global Cities Survey, which keeps track of which cities are of most importance to the world's wealthiest people. It ranks cities based on four factors: Economic Activity, Quality of Life, Knowledge & Influence and Political Power, as well as taking into account the number of UHNWIs who call each city home.
  • Miami now ranks 7 nationally in terms of college students per capita, according to a recent study.
  • Miami had the fastest increase in well-educated young adults living in close-in urban neighborhoods, according to economist Joe Cortright.
  • Miami ranked number 1 nationally in a Kauffman Foundation study last year of entrepreneurial activity on a per capita basis.

The rankings were highlighted in a recent Knight Foundation blog post
