This year, work with your fellow members to Maximize Your Momentum and reach higher than you ever have before!
Arizona DECA was established in 1961 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, held by the Arizona Department of Education, that engages and equips students in high schools and colleges throughout the state.
Throughout Arizona DECA's 61-year history, tens of thousands of students have passed through the program on their journey to become the next generation of business leaders. Giving students the resources and tools they need to succeed, a legion of teachers and administrators dedicate their passion for education to prepare emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management.
Because of DECA, students are able to become college and career-ready faster than their peers. Nearly 88% of DECA members report that their personal DECA experience connected school to the real world and 95% of DECA members report that they gained more skills in public speaking and problem solving. Many of our professional conferences attract prestigious companies and educational institutions like Marriott International and Arizona State University's W.P. Carey School of Business, who attend to recruit simply because DECA students are a highly-motivated group of rising stars looking to own their future.
Arizona Collegiate DECA provides students of the state's top colleges and universities with the professional development skills, networking connections, and confidence to enter the workplace. The second step on the DECA journey, Collegiate DECA ensures students are ready to meet the challenges of free enterprise in the modern world. Reaching their limitless potential, Collegiate DECA students redefine excellence.
