College can be an especially formative adventure in one's life; it's a chance for personal growth and expansion. Students begin to learn what they want to do and forge the needed skills to be a thriving adult. But learning is more than what one learns in the classroom - the campus dialogue, the funny story learned from an old professor, the exposure to a different vantage point. As such, a diverse student population vastly improves what you gain from your time at university.

Business Administration and Management is a more popular focus for students of color than white students. 47% of America's Business Administration and Management majors are white students, followed by asian students (18%), students of other races**(16%), and latino students (15%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is University of Dallas located in Irving, TX.

Secondly, Business Administration and Management slightly skews male, with faintly over 2 out of 5 majors identifying as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA.

Another critical type of diversity is class diversity. Unfortunately, Business Administration and Management is one of America's least economically diverse subjects (Bottom 29%). 32% of its majors come from homes taking in above $110,000 per year, 16% are from mid-income homes, and 24% grew up in low income families. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is the most financially diverse college in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall CA is the most diverse state for Business Administration and Management. The Far West is the most diverse region, and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference is the most diverse conference.
