Welcome! Saunders College of Business at Rochester Institute of Technology is proud to host the New York State Region #10 High School DECA Competition on January 4, 2018.

DECA students will present their business plans to local business leaders who will serve as the competition’s judges. A variety of subjects will be at the center of each business plan including: accounting applications, business finance, marketing management and retail merchandising to name a few.

DECA students and advisors will arrive on campus by 8:30 a.m. and students will break off into individual and group role plays to present their plans. When not competing students will attend a workshop featuring a special guest speaker and learn about the many entrepreneurship activities available on the RIT campus.

Winners of the Region 10 Regional High School DECA Competition will be recognized at the awards ceremony in the Gordon Field House at 1:00 p.m. Winners will advance onto the New York State DECA International Career Development Conference in April 2018.
