Delavan-Darien High School students in Jodi Scott’s accounting classes had the opportunity to take the Junior Achievement Titan Challenge with Laura Patterson from BMO Harris Bank in Delavan.
Patterson worked with students on decision-making, teamwork and data analysis.
Junior Achievement’s online JA Titan® simulation allows teams of high school students to act as chief executive officers of virtual manufacturing companies.
The teams are prompted to make decisions that affect the profitability and sustainability of their companies as they attempt to outperform their competitors in profit, sales and market share.
By exercising critical fiscal and managerial decision-making, students get firsthand experience in the challenges of operating a successful enterprise.
