Welcome DECA Members
Welcome! Saunders College of Business supports everything that you and your club members are learning about in DECA, including business, entrepreneurship, hospitality, marketing and much more.
Since 2011, Saunders has been proud sponsors of DECA. Our partnership has taken off ever since. We continue to find more ways to support DECA as we grow together, including establishing more initiatives at the regional level. Below are a few examples. We would love to hear from you about how we can support your academic business activities.
We invite you to take advantage of the student resources and we hope to see you on campus one day. Until then we invite you to visit us online and explore our Saunders College view book, undergraduate programs, co-op opportunities and student success stories so you can discover all that Saunders can offer.

Collegiate DECA Chapter
Since the beginning of our DECA partnership, there has been growing interest in starting a DECA Collegiate Chapter, which was established in the fall of 2015. Now in its second year, Saunders College DECA members are planning to participate in their first DECA competition. Interest continues to grow, and the club offers members like yourself a very familiar platform to continue your participation and experience DECA benefits long beyond your high school graduation.
