“Looking back, I can say that the JAYE Company Programme has taught me a lot in such little time. The programme creates various realistic business situations which test your knowledge and abilities. Such situations help students become better at problem-solving. The formal documents such as the Business Plan and Final Report have made us students realize the amount of time needed to produce such documents, and also helps us students come together to produce something as a team. Thanks to such tasks I have acquired certain skills such as better time management, respecting deadlines, and so on. The programme has helped me become more diplomatic in my work as well in my conversations with others. I have also learned how to make a product both noticeable and desirable in such a small, competitive market. I realized that the programme gives importance to teamwork, creating various team-building activities at different stages in order to help us asses our progress. In fact, one value I cherish highly from this experience is getting to know what it takes to be part of a team, the challenges and perks of having team mates. I think that the programme has given me a better understanding of what it entails to run a business. What takes place in the Company Programme mirrors what really happens in the world of business. Despite being a competition, I believe that all participants emerge as winners as all of us have learnt skills essential for our self-development and which will help us with any future business venture we wish to get involved in.
