DECA (An Association of Marketing Students) is a student organization whose program of leadership and personal development is designed specifically for students interested in marketing, advertising, management, and entrepreneurship. The goals of DECA are to promote leadership development, civic consciousness, social intelligence, and vocational understanding.
DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
As a DECA member, students can enter co-curricular competitive events. Students enter the competition on the regional level and advance to state and national competition. North Allegheny has a very active DECA membership and is well-known in the state for its winning tradition!
NASH is not the only school to offer DECA. There are DECA Chapters in schools across the United States. For more information on this National Organization, visit the National DECA Website at deca.org.
