JA Company Program

In the JA Company Program students establish a real-time minicompany. By challenging the students to solve a problem in their community through a business venture, the Company Program unleashes their entrepreneurial spirit. Students experience running their own company (for one academic year), they discover first-hand how a company functions and gain an insight into how their talents could be used to set up a business.

The aim of the JA Company Program is to enable students to form their own real enterprise and discover first-hand how a company functions. They elect a board of directors from amongst their peers, raise share capital, and market and finance a product or service of their own choice.

The program is part of the teaching and practical activities of the educational institution.

The program is currently running in 20 countries across Europe.
