Research suggests that diverse environments enhance conscious modes of thought, resulting in greater intellectual engagement and active thinking. Ordinal and multinomial logistic regression results indicate that accounting courses and business law classes are useful predictors of subsequent performance. Odds ratio estimates indicate that students who perform poorly in these predictor classes are more than four times as likely to perform poorly in subsequent classes. Academic and gender diversity were not found to be significantly related to student performance.
