DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
The DECA chapter is to the marketing/business education/Career and Work Skills Training student what a civic or professional is to a group of businesspeople. Chapter activities are recognized as a part of the total educational program because they develop leadership skills, professional attitudes, business competencies, citizenship characteristics, and social growth of the individual. DECA activities provide members with opportunities to serve in leadership roles, work in teams, and receive local, state and national recognition.
