Florida is generally known for its tourism industry. With cities like Miami, Orlando, and Tampa drawing high numbers of visitors each year, tourism's role in Florida's economic makeup is secure. But while the tourism industry certainly feeds the service sector, it is by no means the only industry to consider. Florida is also home to corporate headquarters for a wide variety of companies, and is a leader in aerospace technologies and aviation, information technologies, life sciences, exploration of clean energy and natural resource technologies, and agriculture.

Below are some of our most requested featured institutions that are currently accepting applications from Florida residents.

To prepare for careers in these industries, Florida’s colleges and universities boast some of the nation’s strongest research facilities.

Private colleges such as the University of Miami with its teaching hospital at Jackson Memorial can provide top-notch education in the life sciences, among other options.
