College often is a very poignant period of one's life; it's a time for individual growth and maturation. Undergraduates start to find out their values and learn many of the essential skills to be a flourishing adult. But learning goes far beyond the classroom - the discussions one has with his schoolmates, the personal lesson gained from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different viewpoint. Therefore, finding a diverse college vastly enriches what one gains from the time spent at university.

Accounting and Finance is a slightly more racially diverse major than average*. 60% of the United States' Accounting and Finance majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(20%), asian students (9%), and black students (6%).

Secondly, Accounting and Finance slightly skews male, with 42% of majors identifying as men. Johnson & Wales University-Charlotte in Charlotte, NC has the most gender balanced student body in the top 100.
