Therefore, it is imperative to identify the opportunities and challenges of educators in the 21st century business education and how the millenial business educators use the opportunities and overcome the challenges. This study is qualitative phenomenological where the researcher interviewed involving eight participants from a state university in Quezon Province. The researcher interviewed the participants and used the thematic inductive analysis to interpret the data. The study revealed the opportunities of millenial business educators, namely: global collaboration, being tech savvies and having greater access for professional growth and development. The identified challenges are global standards, lack of related industry experience and misrepresentation of information. The millenials take advantage of these opportunities by influencing and motivating students towards learning engagement and e-learning. To overcome the challenges, the business educators must adapt the changing environment by acquiring advanced education and having the right mindset to continuously develop their skills and abilities as business educators.
