AAF Columbus
Connecting You to the Creative Class

Columbus is one of the fastest growing major metropolitan areas in the country and celebrated as the second strongest metro in the country for job creation. An up-and-coming tech city, Columbus area research and technology institutions are attracting the brightest minds from around the world, and our nationally acclaimed arts scene guarantees you’ll find creativity around every corner.

Our smarts, energy and vibrancy are fueled by a workforce that’s younger and more educated than the national average. And our youthful, progressive nature is matched by diverse economy that offers a variety of career paths. To cap it all off, Columbus was named the most intelligent city in the U.S. two years in a row and is ranked the third happiest city in the country.
