This session guides students through the JA Titan simulation and focuses on the foundational key terms and concepts for the simulation: budget, cash-on hand, chief executive officer, expenses, income statement, and price versus production.
This session explores the JA Titan Production department and the relevant simulation screens, features, and business decisions. In this session, students learn about the interconnected aspects of profit, price, cost, and production.

This deep dive session takes a close-up look at a vital department found in many companies: the research and development department (often referred to as R&D). Students explore advantages and disadvantages of investing in R&D through classroom-based activities. They also explore R&D strategies, culminating in their own smartphone innovation idea and prototype.

Students explore the Four Ps of Marketing (product, place, price, and promotion) through classroom-based activities, eventually culminating in the students drafting a marketing plan of their own.
This deep dive session takes a close-up look at corporate social responsibility (commonly referred to as CSR). Operating a community business that focuses on CSR has benefits and costs.
