We are happy to again have been part of Junior Achievement’s Titan Challenge. What is the Titan Challenge?
Business management, capital investment, charitable giving, the four Ps of marketing, the law of diminishing returns, product life cycles and research & development are just a few of the topics students were introduced to at the Titan Business Challenge, an online strategy competition designed to unleash creativity, test leadership, and demonstrate the competitive nature of our free enterprise system.
Held at the Claire T. Carney Library at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth on March 15, 2016, Titan gave high schoolers, from 13 schools across the South Coast, the opportunity to experiment with ideas that required them to think *and* act as individuals and in collaboration with others. With guidance from seasoned professionals, they made real-time decisions that had immediate impact on the health of their virtual companies. All this while competing for scholarship dollars –scholarship dollars we helped make possible through our support of this innovative effort!
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest and longest-operating charity exclusively dedicated to teaching work-readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship; from learning to balance a checkbook to understanding how to be an effective and productive team member, from interviewing to critical-thinking to Titan, JA remains focused – as it has for 97 years – on encouraging paths to self-sufficiency.
Our partnership with Junior Achievement of Southern MA allows us to have immediate impact on today’s youth and long-term impact on tomorrow’s economy. Titan is one such example of how we help achieve that impact.
