Western University’s DECA U chapter is part of an international organization striving to help motivated students become future leaders. At DECA Western, we have three key pillars: competition, networking, and professional development. Through these pillars, we engage students in business-related areas such as business law, consulting, entrepreneurship, finance, management, marketing, and sales. A membership with DECA Western allows you to participate in all of our conferences, case competitions, and workshops, as well as have the opportunity to apply to join our executive leadership team. This year DECA has chosen to put further emphasis in its networking pillar with a variety of new initiatives. DECA Western will now offer members a mentorship program to help guide incoming members both professionally and through their Western education. As well DECA Western is expanding its events portfolio to help enhance students’ opportunities to connect with leading industry professionals. In addition, we compete annually at DECA U Nationals in downtown Toronto. Whether you have been involved with DECA since high school or this is your first time, you are welcome to join us.
