DECA's Mission

DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.

The Buc Stop

DECA’s Buc Stop school store serves as a laboratory for the development of management, marketing, and entrepreneurial skills.  The store opens for business before school begins, operating from 7:10 AM to 7:30 AM, and then reopens for lunches and after school from 2:23-2:40 p.m.

“School-based enterprises are effective educational tools in helping to prepare students for the transition from school to work or college. For many students, they provide the first work experience; for others, they provide an opportunity to build management, supervision and leadership skills.”
