Sample Schedule

THIS DOES NOT DO IT JUSTICE ("WORKSHOP" MIGHT SOUND SUPER BORING, BUT WE PROMISE THEY ARE AWESOME!), BUT BECAUSE YOU ASKED, HERE'S A PLAY-BY-PLAY OF A TYPICAL JA BUSINESS WEEK. THERE ARE A LOT OF MOVING PARTS, SO DON'T HOLD US TO IT!  

You'll see a lot of  "Company Time" in the schedule. That is time you'll spend with your company - your group of 10 to 15 JA Business Week students. You work as a team to tackle one of the JA Business Week projects. Company time is unstructured, and is the time you spend with your group innovating, creating and developing the (hopefully!) winning idea.
