  • Poll: Generation Z teens describe themselves entrepreneurial, self-directed

    Diverse - 11/18/2014

    While placing a high value on higher education, the generation of young Americans now in their late teens can also be described as highly entrepreneurial and self-directed, a new national poll has found. On Tuesday, Northeastern University officials unveiled wide-ranging survey results detailing the life aspirations and social views held by Generation Z, or 16- to 19-year-old Americans.

    The “Meet Generation Z” poll, conducted this past October for the Boston-based university’s fourth national Innovation Imperative survey on higher education and the economy, labels the teenage cohort as the “Self-Starter Generation” owing to their “strong desire to work for themselves, learn about entrepreneurship and design their own programs of study in college.”
