The Core Value of Deca

DECA is a business and marketing organization where young professionals compete while learning business concepts and sharpening their communication skills.

In the modern economy, it’s more important than ever that students learn to speak effectively, to think outside the box, and to apply a business mindset in their careers and their everyday lives.

DECA combines all of these, helping tomorrow’s leaders grow their skillset while enjoying the time of their lives.
