Marian University - Fond Du Lac, WI: Highest Female-to-Male ROI Overall
Marian University in Wisconsin not only has a student body that is overwhelmingly dominated by females (73%), but the ROI for women is more than two and a half times that of the ROI for men. Is this private Catholic school a modern-day Amazonian wonderland? No, it’s more likely due to the fact that the most popular major at Marian is Nursing, which is dominated by females and pays fairly well. The male population is more likely to study Business (remember that our ROI is based on people who don’t go on to get graduate degrees, and business majors who don’t go on to get an MBA typically see lower lifetime earnings) and Criminal Justice, which doesn’t lead to especially high-paying careers.
