Queens University of Charlotte partners with DECA to connect with the next generation of business leaders and prepare them to be innovative, engaged, and impactful citizens in a global economy.

We attend local, national, and international DECA conferences where we meet and engage with high-achieving high school students who are interested in a career in business. We host exhibits and serve on panels where we share admissions advice and highlight the unique aspects of pursuing a business degree at Queens.
