Boston: A First-Class Educational and Business Hub

Back to News

Among the large cities in the US, Boston certainly has a unique charm. Founded in 1630 by some of the first colonists to arrive in North America, it is one of the oldest cities in the US and has ever since maintained its own cultural heritage. As of today, some visitors still emphasize that there is a certain European feel to the city, although this somewhat subjective notion lies in the eye of the beholder.

However, what is certain is that the city has steadily risen to become one of America's top educational and business hubs. World-class universities such as the Boston University and the Boston College have coined the urban image of Boston. The world-renowned Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are located just across the Charles River in Cambridge, almost at walking distance from downtown Boston. These world-class institutions have cemented Boston's image as a national and worldwide centre for education, attracting some of the best and brightest students from all over the world.

Well-qualified graduates from the city's top institutions had their fair share in making Boston one of the most economically powerful cities in the world, thriving in financial services and the high-tech industry. Furthermore, the over 20 million tourists visiting the city provide the icing on the cake for a successful and lively megacity that is known for having some of the best living standards in the country.

Hosting the main or regional headquarters of a vast number of multinational corporations and being a major transportation hub with excellent travel connections have made Boston one of the main destinations for business travel. Compared to other major cities in the US, Boston's public transportation network is quite decent.

Nonetheless, if you are a business traveller, there are certainly more elegant and relaxing means of transportation to take you to your next business meeting. Examples of such exclusive transportation options that match the chic and sophisticated Bostonian lifestyle can be found here. This way, you can relax while on your way, enjoy a fast and reliable drive and even make private and important phone calls thanks to our drivers' absolute discretion.
