College often is a particularly influential period of one's life; it's a time for individual progress and maturation. Undergrads begin to ascertain their values and build many of the rudimentary skills to be a halcyon adult. But learning is not completely confined to the classroom - the campus dialogue, the personal lesson learned from a tenured professor, the exposure to a different view. As such, attending a diverse college tremendously improves what one gains from the time spent at university.

Industrial Management is a slightly more ethnically diverse subject than average*. 59% of America's Industrial Management majors are white students, followed by students of other races**(24%), latino students (7%), and asian students (5%). The most ethnically diverse college* in the top 100 is Claremont McKenna College located in Claremont, CA.

Second, Industrial Management significatly skews male, with faintly over three in four students majoring in Industrial Management identifying as men. The most gender balanced school in the top 100 is Universidad Ana G. Mendez-Gurabo Campus in Gurabo, PR.

Another critical type of diversity is financial diversity. Industrial Management ranks in the top 35% of programs for socioeconomic diversity. 29% of its students come from households bringing in below $30,000 a year, 16% are from middle income households, and 24% grew up in homes earning north of $110,000 a year. Pittsburg State University has the most economically diverse students in the top 100.

Considering each type of diversity, overall NY is the most diverse state for Industrial Management. The Mid East is the most diverse region, and the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference is the most diverse conference.
