We are Lanier College and Career DECA! Established in 2003, we’ve grown to offer a vast variety of opportunities for our members. Our students put their marketing skills to the test by consulting with local businesses, completing internships, engaging in community service projects, and competing against marketing students from around the world.
DECA’s competitive events program directly supports our mission. As an integral part of the classroom curriculum, DECA’s industry-validated competitive events are aligned with the National Curriculum Standards in the career clusters of marketing, business management and administration, finance, and hospitality and tourism. DECA’s flagship evaluation process involves students in both a written component such as an exam or report and an interactive component with an industry professional serving as a judge. DECA’s competitive events directly contribute to every student being college and career ready when they graduate from high school. Students compete at the regional, state, and international levels.
