JA Titan Business Challenge


March 1, 2016

The Junior Achievement Titan Business Challenge is a two part event, consisting of a Student Competition held during the day and an Adult Competition after work hours. Most importantly, it is a business strategy tournament using the JA Titan program - an online business manufacturing simulation program. Each team acts as the Senior Management Team of their company and is responsible for developing business strategies and making "do or die" decisions quarter by quarter. The competition is uniquely designed to unleash creativity, test leadership skills and demonstrate the competitive nature of the free enterprise system.  Teams go head-to-head as they strive to make informed, intelligent business decisions in running their own global, virtual business.  The success or failure of the company depends on how well these decisions are made.


The Student Competition is designed for local high school students to compete in the JA Titan Business Simulation at Davenport University during their school day. Students have the opportunity to participate in a campus tour, buffet lunch, and JA Titan competition. After completing the competition a winner is announced based on their game scores. Each member of the Four Member Team with the best score is awarded $1,000 Davenport Scholarships and the JA Titan Business Challenge Competition Trophy.


The Adult Competition is designed for local businesses and organizations. There will be networking, hors d'oeuvres, cash bar and a silent auction, in addition to the JA Titan Business Competition. The event will take place at night on the same day of the Student Competition.
