The impact of their decisions will lead to the success or failure of their company!

Sign-up now for the 15th Annual JA Titan Business Challenge: a day-long live event, with student teams competing at Youngstown State University's Williamson College of Business.

What is JA Titan?
JA Titan 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.

What is JA Titan Competition?
During the JA Titan Competition, teams of 2-3 students make financial decisions about production, marketing, research and development (R&D), and corporate social responsibility (CSR) for their company. Student-run teams from across our four-county service area compete for the chance to win scholarships and consolation prizes and be named the JA Titans of Business. During the competition, students will log on to a virtual platform with their mentor and JA Area staff and make business decisions.

JA Titan Business Competition allows students to:
• Have fun while competing against peers for scholarship money.
• Predict and identify various trade-offs based on production business decisions.
• Use a budget as a strategy to monitor revenue, expenses, and other financial records.
• Recognize the importance of profit to the success of a business.
• Analyze how R&D and marketing expenses are company investments.
• Evaluate how a company can be a good community partner and socially responsible.
