IBM Validates Ohio STEM Skills

Who better than IBM to tell the story about STEM skills and where to find them in the U.S.?

Ron Lovell, VP - IBM Client Center, was on a panel at the recent Ohio Jobs and Workforce Summit put on by U.S. Senator Rob Portman.  He had two things to say on behalf of IBM that stand out.

IBM crunched the numbers and found that within a 250-mile radius of Columbus was more college grads than all but one other place on the planet.

They also were satisfied knowing that the Midwest could meet their STEM skills needs as well as the East Coast or the West Coast could.

That's why IBM is opening a new analytics center in Central Ohio.

Good decision.
