AAS will be hosting its first ever Junior Achievement program, commencing September 20 and running for 12 weeks, with Bloomberg as the sponsor. This fantastic opportunity will take place at the Bloomberg office at Capital Square and is complimentary for members’ children aged 15-19.
The JA Company Program, has students put theory into practice by developing their own money-making businesses, from concept to business plan, financing, execution, sales and ultimately, growth or demise. The experience fosters understanding and appreciation of the personal opportunities and responsibilities each person has in the work-place. Students will then compete in the JA Singapore Company of the Year Competition in January 2014 and the winning team will represent Singapore in the Asia Pacific Company of the Year Competition in February 2014!
