The teacher- led curriculum enhances student understanding of work ethic, economics leadership, and teamwork. JA BizTown combines in-classroom learning with real world application. During the in-classroom lessons, the studentscreate a business plan, calculate operating costs, explore career options, and design a marketing campaign. During a town simulation the students:

  • Work as an employee on a business team

  • Become consumers and producers within a functioning economy
  • Manage personal finances
  • Practice responsible citizenship by voting and paying taxes
  • Implement a marketing campaign for their business

The students discuss strategy behind pricing, inventory, marketing and selling products to generate revenue. All student business groups work towards the common goal of paying off a business loan by the end of the day.
