DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe." (The Mission of DECA). The Kelley School of Business chapter hopes to prepare students for life after college. Our chapter hopes to be a support system for students by hosting networking events, study sessions, attending case competitions, community service events, as well as notifying students of opportunities to gain experience within their industry. Our members get to attend DECAs exclusive International Career Development Conference (ICDC) held yearly in late April around the U.S. ICDC is the highlight of DECA's year, where for several days students get to participate in a variety of leadership and career advancing academies.
KSB DECA is not limited to students within the Kelley School of Business nor those in the Tourism, Hospitality, and Event Management program, ALL STUDENTS ARE WELCOMED
