    Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s quest to make Chicago a global city continued Wednesday when he announced that Huron Consulting Group committed to adding 400 to 600 jobs to its Chicago headquarters office over the next three years.

    This addition brings the number of job Emanuel has introduced during his administration to 15,000 and brings his desire to make Chicago a global city an inch closer.

The growing company increased its profits from $35.1 in 2006 to $606.3 million in 2011, adding nearly 200 companies to their client list.
