Special Topics in Business Marketing and Marketing Management

We will be participating in the 2019 Collegiate DECA Engage Academy in Chicago. Additional details will follow.

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 as a member of MRKG 1391.
