Metro Southwest . . . Technology Heartland of Massachusetts
Covering the area between Routes 128/I495, and serving 43 communities, Metro Southwest is one of the largest of the 16 workforce regions in Massachusetts.
The Metro Southwest (MSW) region contains communities that are defined by high-growth, high-paying knowledge and innovation industries, exceptional educational attainment and outstanding research and education institutions.
MSW is a college labor market in which jobs requiring post-secondary education dominate and college-educated residents thrive. Those without post-secondary education do not.
