ACC DECA Engage Academy students visit the center of entertainment and hospitality in NYC

MRKG 1391

Special Topics in Business Marketing and Marketing Management

The course is designed to experience New York City, the heart of the business world! We will be participating in the 2017 Collegiate DECA Engage Academy, Nov 8-12, 2017 . Students experience the industry and career field of their choice by meeting with industry leaders, going behind the scenes to learn how business gets done, and putting their knowledge to the test to find new solutions to challenges that today's industries are facing! Students will network with other students from across the country and work in teams to address industry issues. It is an opportunity of a lifetime to live, learn and lead.

Below is a link describing the conference from the student perspective - written by Joshua Koshy, the new Collegiate DECA Vice President and an ACC student.  He attended this conference last year as a member of MRKG 1391.
