The question of what the CEOs of tomorrow will look like has plagued minds since the incredibly casual, baby-faced Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg hit -- or rather, took over -- the scene. Since then, successful entrepreneurs have begun looking younger and younger, placing less emphasis on education and more on being proactive on the blogosphere.

CEO.com predicts where this pattern will lead in 20 years with the aptly named CEOs of Tomorrow infographic. The chart explores the opinions and achievements of 2,400 students hoping to one day be CEOs, gathering participants' thoughts on education, experience, leadership, social media and top priorities.

Highlights from the information include the following: almost 30% of students think level of education is not a factor in a CEO's success, with passion identified as the most important quality for a CEO to have by a staggering 40% of students surveyed. Education comes in dead last at 3%. Start getting your toddlers to watch the Social Network now.
