Teamwork and interpersonal communication are indispensable skills for business workers, and most companies are promoting diversity in teams to gain a competitive edge. Although findings suggest that diversity may not be as valuable as it seems for most teams, business workers need to manage diversity successfully.

Analyses of variance indicated that teams with similar majors expressed their ideas more freely and developed friendships more easily than did teams of mixed majors.
