JABC’s Winter Business Challenge for JA’s Titan Business Game will run January 14 -23, 2019! We’re pleased to invite teachers to register their students for participation.
Deadline to register is Friday December 21st, 6 p.m.
This is an ONLINE competition where students from around BC work in teams of three on our Market Maneuvers site to manage a company in a virtual marketplace. Student managers must out-smart other companies – competing for market share and financial success while tracking a shifting economy. Challenge games are based on the same concepts and strategies students learn in the JA Titan program.
Certificates & prizes will be awarded!
FYI for teachers:
The business game platform we use for Business Challenge competitions is called MARKET MANEUVERS ONLINE
This game-site enables:
- Province-wide participation
- Teacher passwords enabling you to set up practice games exclusive to your own students
- Direct online registration for Challenge competitions
- Varied game scenarios involving bigger $$, but based on Titan Business Game concepts and strategies
Teachers need to set up their admin passwords and register student companies for the Challenge by Friday December 21st, 6 p.m.
First collect a team (company) name, plus the first names and emails of 3 team members, for each team you want to register. Then click this link to set up your teacher account where you can view the competition’s Rules and begin the registration process:
Entry is free. It’s not necessary to register all your teams at the same time – each Titan teacher may return to the site to register as many 3-student teams as they wish – as long as the registration is still open and the competition still has capacity. The total capacity of the Challenge is 120 teams, so it’s to your advantage to sign up early to ensure your students can participate. Please remember each team must have 3 members, and a student may participate on only one team.
Note: Access to the MARKET MANEUVERS game site for practice is available once you register teams. Register early to allow your teams practice time prior to Winter Break and during the first week back in January!
Watch for final game details, timeline and instructions to be emailed to you on Wednesday January 9th in preparation for the Monday January 14th launch of the Challenge.

Players will have the weekend off. Winners will be announced January 24th.
