What is deca?

An international organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs. 

DECA is an international organization whose mission is to prepare “emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.” DECA U Ontario is Canada’s largest undergraduate conference, with over 2000 delegates from chapters across Ontario. Each year, delegates compete at the DECA U Provincials Conference in the hopes of succeeding to the international competition. During the conference, delegates compete in tests and case competitions in categories like Restaurant and Food Services, Marketing Management, Retail Management. Through DECA, students are able to gain knowledge and experience outside the lecture hall, as they develop their analytical, presentation, and business leadership skills through in house delegate development sessions and various events throughout the year.


DECA Ryerson is an award winning and record breaking chapter of success-driven students at the Ted Rogers School of Management. 

Consistently striving to reach the pinnacle of academic, social and professional success.
