Connecting to business is one of DECA's guiding principles – and a key business strategy for over 70 major companies, foundations, colleges and universities.

This group of insightful business partners is known as  DECA's National Advisory Board (NAB). The NAB provides realistic insight into industry and promotes meaningful, relevant learning. In turn, they gain access to a talented pool of potential employees and informed customers.
