SUMMARY

Choosing to study Industrial Management is not only a valuable choice, but commonly an obligatory first step for undergraduates coveting to pursue a career as an industrial design manager, an industrial mechanic, or a manufacturing/industrial engineer. In fact, industrial management is an uncommon major coming in at the 191st most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 1,255 industrial management diplomas received. In-state tuition for industrial management at private universities is, on average, 4.6 times more spendy than their public rivals.

With only 64 institutions offering this degree there might be a smaller selection of institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other industrial management students, look at universities in New York which have more undergrads admitted to industrial management than any other state. More generally, the top region to study industrial management is in the Great Lakes region with Eastern Michigan University, Bowling Green State University-Main Campus, and Purdue University-Main Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study industrial management is the Pacific-12 Conference with Arizona State University-Tempe, Stanford University, and Arizona State University-Skysong representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best school for industrial management is Stanford University. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The best school might not actually be the best school for you. There can be a bunch of perspectives to think about when deciding on institution. External stuff such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely sway your feelings of which university to attend. Here at Authority, we've evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which industrial management university is home to the top campus, the winner is New York University. If you are very interested in which university boasts the best campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more to compare every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life here and from that list, our selection for the college with the best student life for industrial management is Washington University in St Louis. Curious why? Continue reading to find out more about Authority's top choices. Some of our decisions will probably shock you.

If price is a significant deciding factor in your choice of where you attend college, you might consider avoiding Claremont McKenna College. Claremont McKenna College appears to be our most expensive school for industrial management, at least regarding out of state students. We do have an entire page for the most expensive universities that might put the expense of Claremont McKenna College into perspective. For more context, you could care to know that industrial management is the 310th most expensive degree in the nation, with an average bill of $23,000. On a broader scale, the most costly state for industrial management in the country is New Jersey with expenses at the primary school, Stevens Institute of Technology, of $52,134. Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the country for industrial management is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Stevens Institute of Technology with a cost of $52,134, Clarkson University with a cost of $49,858, and New York University with a cost of $50,684.

Our cheapest region for industrial management is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Utah State University with a cost of $21,087 and Utah Valley University with a cost of $15,872. In better news, the most affordable university for industrial management is University of Management and Technology. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying around $10,100 for a degree in industrial management. The cost inflates by a lot to a median of $22,400 for an out-of-state public-school undergrad. Our selection for the university with the best value for industrial management: Stanford University. Through this link you can see our comprehensive list on the schools we believe to be the best value in general. Bear in mind, this idea is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for industrial management students differ widely, but within two years graduation students will typically make in the neighborhood of $73,900. There can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can make up to $112,900. Even straight out of college, the lowest end opportunities within the industrial management field make $48,100, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads from industrial management studied at Stanford University and if you are looking for universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of industrial management ranks decent, falling within the 53rd percentile of majors nationally. The university with the most composite diversity for industrial management is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Industrial Management sits only within the 65th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 54th percentile. White collegians make up the largest proportion, 59%, of those majoring in industrial management. Additionally, 76% of students pursuing an industrial management major are men.

The median ranking of industrial management professors is 3.7 stars, which is 7% worse than the median for every major; which is a subpar score. If you want the most popular industrial management professor nationally, look no further than Peter Vadasz from Northern Arizona University. This may be shocking, but the best ranked professors of industrial management from student rankings are found at University of Central Florida. If we including data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the university with the overall best instructors for industrial management is Stanford University. One can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the best professors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult school to get into for industrial management is Stanford University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have a comprehensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you understand that looking at academics from context only shaped by superlatives might create problems. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on individual universities and peruse some of Authority's background articles on important details to look out for as you progress with your school search.
