U.S. News University - 12/01/2014
Generation Z teenagers, who were born in the mid-1990s, are more interested in do-it-yourself careers and schooling than traditional structures, according to a new survey from Northeastern University.
Conducted online and over the phone in October with more than 1,000 teenagers between the ages of 16 and 19, the survey found that 63% of the participants said they’d like to learn how to start a business or about entrepreneurship in college. Additionally, 72% said they think college students should have the ability to design their own majors or areas of academic concentration, according to a press release from the university.
