Business is good in Las Cruces! With a steadily strong economy, a well-educated workforce, and plenty of avenues for growth, our city is ripe with opportunity. According to a report released by The City of Las Cruces Economic Development Office (EDO), “33.6% of Las Cruces’ population over 25 have a Bachelor’s Degree or better, versus the national average of 28.2%.” Furthermore, NerdWallet named it one of the top 100 “Best Places for Tech Jobs” and Forbes has included Las Cruces several times on their annual list of “Best Small Metro Areas for Business and Career.”

Optimized Optimized work1 NMSUFrom technology and agriculture to military, education, and healthcare, Las Cruces offers a wide range of employment opportunities. The top area  employers are New Mexico State University, White Sands Missile Range, Las Cruces Public Schools, NASA, and City of Las Cruces. Other  notable employers include Dona Ana Community College, Memorial Medical Center, Dona Ana County, Gadsden Independent School  District, and MountainView Regional Medical Center.

Manufacturing, logistics, and transportation are strong industries that continue to grow thanks to the nearby U.S. Port of Entry in Santa Teresa,  NM, which is also home to two industrial parks. Right by the Las Cruces International Airport, the West Mesa Industrial Park is geared towards  manufacturing, aviation, and technology industries. Las Cruces is also a base operations point for Virgin Galactic’s Spaceport America “the  world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport,” positioning our city at the forefront of the aerospace industry. Optimized Optimized work3 DonaAnaCnty
