What do millennials think about lifelong learning?
- 91% of millennial students plan to complete further schooling or credentialing
- It’s important to plan for the next stage of your career
- More than half of millennial students think they need to participate in an education programme more than once a year to stay relevant
Remy Lovett, B.A. Business and Spanish, University of Denver
I have high hopes for continuing my education past college. I have the goal of getting an MBA down the road if it makes sense with my career. And I, also, would love to do some extended certification programmes in either coding, or web design, or some other tangible, relatable skill sets for my work.
Lifelong learning is so important for my future career because I think at any stage in life and at any age we're always growing and we're always looking at the next career. It's not necessarily our lifelong career, but just the next stage. And so there's always something to be learned in those areas. And so whatever industry I go into, there's always going to be a learning curve and always something that I will be able to build upon with the new skill set. And so I'm always looking at different certification programmes and always looking at different programmes that they offer to build on those skill sets—is important to me and something that I really enjoy doing.
