Through conferences and competitions, DECA instills professionalism and prepares youth to respond to authentic business cases and market demands. DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
Five Town Centre students travelled to downtown Toronto on February 7th and 8th to compete in the 2020 DECA Provincials. DECA International has over 200, 000 members; DECA Ontario has over 15,000 members (2nd largest worldwide); and over 7,000 members were at the Provincials, competing for a chance to qualify for the International competition. Downtown Toronto was filled with the leaders of tomorrow in business attire.
Our students competed in events like Automotive Service Marketing, Business Services Marketing, Food Marketing, Marketing Management, Hospitality & Tourism, and Restaurant & Food Management. It was a busy and demanding weekend, and unfortunately none of our DECA Tigers made it into the top 6 in their event, and thus to Internationals.
