JA Titan

JA Titan is an interactive, online business simulation that tests students’ business knowledge as they compete against each other to create and market a successful company. Students make strategic decisions about price, production, marketing, capital investment, charitable giving and R & D while learning how these decisions affect the success or failure of a company. Student teams compete in their respective communities to qualify for the JA Titan Business Challenge. Winning teams advance to regional and state competitions with the opportunity to participate in the global competition.
