A Year as an Entrepreneur
What is it all about?
The Junior Achievement's Company Program offers students aged 13–21 the opportunity to learn how to turn a business idea into reality. The program provides teachers with practical material on business, economics and entrepreneurship activities. It is a great way to help students succeed in a global economy.
By challenging the students to launch and run their own business, the JA Company Program unleashes their entrepreneurial spirit. Students experience running their own company for one semester and discover first-hand how a company functions as well as gain insight into how their talents could be used further in working life.
The aim of the JA Company Program is to enable students to start their own real-life business and discover how a company functions in a learning-by-doing environment.
Junior Achievement Finland is a part of the global Junior Achievement network, which is one of the largest providers of education programs for entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy, reaching over 10 million students in over 100 countries. The JA Company Program is a Junior Achievement’s program.
