JA Titan Business Challenge


March 2, 2016

Date Change due to Weather

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.
