WBUR - 10/20/2017
MIT President Rafael Reif said the university is “extremely excited” about Amazon possibly coming to town and “wants to play a role” if that happens. Northeastern President Joseph Aoun said the university’s campuses in Boston and Seattle are already helping “produce a pipeline of talent” for companies like Amazon.
Boston’s bid emphasizes the city’s growing tech talent, noting that it has the seventh highest number of workers in computer and math-related jobs in the country.
