It features a comprehensive learning curriculum that focuses on the student's role in the economy. After the completion of several weeks of specialised in-class learning, students will apply for jobs at various companies at JA BizTown.

JA BizTown consists of a mini-city consisting of several real-life private sector businesses, that will allow students to work in various roles in a simulated economy.
