DECA and the SIFMA Foundation are pleased to provide their members with the DECA Stock Market Game and the Collegiate DECA Stock Market Game.
The Stock Market Game is an online simulation of the global capital markets and engages students in the world of economics, investing, and personal finance with the goal of preparing them for financially independent futures.
In the DECA and Collegiate Stock Market Games, teams of one to three DECA members are given a virtual $100,000 to invest in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Team members must work together to build and manage a high performing investment portfolio.
