Texas State University has been named one of the top R2 universities in the nation for producing the most high-earning female graduates by the website Steppingblocks.com.

Surveying female alumni under 40 earning more than $100,000 annually, Steppingblocks ranked Texas State No. 6 among R2 Universities in the South, with an average salary of $126,225. Top employers for Texas State grads were USAA, Dell and Deloitte, with top majors listed as accounting, healthcare and marketing. 

Universities were categorized in regional rankings for the Northeast, South and Midwest. Under Carnegie Classification, R2 universities must award at least 20 research or scholarship doctoral degrees annually and demonstrate high research activity.

To obtain a comprehensive picture of education and workforce outcomes, Steppingblocks collected, organized, classified and analyzed demographic, education and employment data from hundreds of sources. The data was then validated to ensure reliable, high-quality information on more than 130 million people, 25 million companies and 1 billion data points. Demographics, education and employment filters were then used to generate a list of R2 universities producing the most high-earning women under 40.
