Shocking Facts About Millennials [Infographic]

What exactly is a Millennial?  What is the exact generational divide as it seems to be a moving target. George Masonick from the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies tells The Atlantic that Millennials (or Generation Y) is “anywhere from the mid-1970s when the oldest were born to the mid-2000s when the youngest were.”

The main difference between Generation Y or Millennials, is that they appear to march to a different drum, their own.

“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.”

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.”
