Sample Schedule: A PLAY-BY-PLAY OF A TYPICAL JA BUSINESS WEEk (subject to change)

You'll see a lot of  "Company Time" in the schedule. That is time you'll spend with your company - your group of 10-12 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.
