“With over 63% of Millennials having a Bachelors degree, they are the most educated generation in America — but, that doesn’t mean that they’re conforming to traditional learning tactics. In fact, 50% of Millennial college students say that they don’t even need a physical classroom, with 53% believing that online colleges are reputable, and 39% viewing the future of education as being more virtual.”[2]

Entrepreneurs even approach business differently, “When it comes to business, 90% of Millennials think being an entrepreneur means having a certain mindset rather than starting a company.”[3]
