What is the JA Titan Challenge
Using Junior Achievement’s high school simulation program, JA Titan, the JA Titan Challenge is a day-long competition which places high school students in the CEO seat to help increase their understanding of business. Young entrepreneurs are taught in an engaging way about the nuances of running a global business in a competitive, high-tech marketplace. Student teams of 2 have complete control of managing and operating their own virtual business and making key decisions. Companies (teams) are challenged to outperform the competition in profit, sales, and market share.
