Partners

DECA's business partners provide strategic advice on organizational policy, professional insight on content and crucial financial support for programming. DECA's business partners are recognized as our National Advisory Board (NAB). DECA's NAB partnerships reflect our founding mission and program strength. Each enhances the classroom experience by providing "real world" application to learning. In exchange, the NAB partners gain access to a network of 5,000 classrooms and 200,000 high school and college students who are working to prepare themselves to be leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Additionally, NAB members value DECA members because they demonstrate competence, innovation, integrity and teamwork.

The NAB includes corporations, foundations and associations that seek to support the development of leaders and entrepreneurs that will be successful in a global economy and will be their companys' employees and leaders, their associations' members and staff and responsible community leaders. In short, DECA's NAB is investing in futures.
