Masters in Business Administration (MBA) programs are designed to teach students – via finance, accounting, etc. – to become successful by making decisions that maximize value. Young people in the juvenile justice system, for instance, often make life or death decisions without any training in strategic thinking. GTA’s award-winning curriculum taps into young people’s inherent knowledge of their environment and equips them with business decision-making tools. Students sketch and analyze tradeoffs and over time envision alternatives for themselves and make better decisions about money, school, career, health, recreation and relationships.

In 2013, GTA won the Excellence in Financial Literacy Education (EIFLE) Award for its
‘Make Your Decisions Count’ curriculum.
