DECA is an association of marketing students that encourages the development of business and leadership skills through academic conferences and competitions. Each competition includes a written test over business and marketing information, as well as role-playing, and problem-solving events. Students are judged on the basis of their ability to develop and communicate sound, creative, and thorough solutions to problem situations.
