According to the “Portrait of Generation Z” report released by Northeastern University, nearly two-thirds of Gen Z-aged respondents said they want to learn about entrepreneurship in college, including how to start a busi­ness. More than four in 10 expect to work for them­selves at some point—nearly four times higher than the current per­centage of self-​​employed Amer­i­cans. According to the Northeastern study, Gen-Z students want colleges to:

…offer practical skills such as financial planning (85%)

…integrate internships and other professional experience into their programs (79%)

…allow them to design their own majors (72%)

…teach entrepreneurship (63%)
