DECA at IU prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, consulting and management. We empower our members though experience to become tomorrow’s leaders through enhancing their professional skills through real-world business simulations and case studies. Events throughout the year will further integrate skills learned in class into real-world experiences for our members, and seek to develop their technical skills, communication skills, human relations and employability skills, and to foster a strong-understanding of economics and free enterprise.
Within its 10-year history, DECA at IU has been able to impact the lives of more than 500 members on the Indiana University Bloomington campus after hosting workshops, competitive events, and social events. Our collaborations with business, however, have enabled us to host networking events and corporate information sessions, providing each of our members with realistic insight into functions and industries, and with the techniques and doctrines they will need to succeed.
DECA is not limited to students in a Kelley School of Business program, or the Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management program: ALL STUDENTS ARE WELCOME!
