Each generation has its own unique characteristics and the Millennial Generation is no different. As these students arrive in our business school classrooms, it is important that we understand where they are coming from, what they are looking for, and how to leverage their talent. Rachel Reiser, author of Millennials on Board: The Impact of the Rising Generation on the Workplace, will examine the characteristics of this generation. Rachel will share with the audience some of the experiential factors that impact this generation’s outlook and assumptions for their educational and work environments, and the associated highlights and hurdles these present. This session will conclude with a dialogue on how to work with Millennials as business students and how to best prepare them for the workplace.
