JA Titan® Blended
JA Titan Blended Model is a simulation-based program in which high school students compete as business CEOs in the phone industry, experiencing firsthand how an organization evaluates alternatives, makes decisions, analyzes the outcomes of those decisions, and then strategizes what to do next. With a focus on financial literacy and insights into the workforce, JA Titan brings business economics to life. As students work in teams, or on their own, to make financial decisions about production, marketing, research and development (R&D), and corporate social responsibility (CSR), they begin to see how every choice made in an organization relates to its future success.
Following participation in the program, students will be able to:
— Predict and identify various trade-offs based on business decisions.
— Apply the profit equation.
— Use a budget as a strategy to monitor income, expenses, and other financial records.
— Express the importance of profit to the success of a business.
— Describe why R&D and marketing expenses are investments.
— Analyze how a company can be a good community partner and socially responsible.
JA Titan is part of the JA Financial Literacy Pathway and is recommended for high school students (Grades 9-12).
This volunteer and educator-led program can be classroom based, remote live, or after school. The blended model comprises 11 sessions that include tutorial sessions, game-play strategy sessions, a competition session, and deep dive sessions. Participants complete a minimum of 5 sessions, in any order. An optional event or in-class competition may be included.
An online simulation is the focus of the program. Participating classes must provide technology that meets the minimum tech specs.
