For 21st century students, preparing for college and future careers requires stretching beyond the classroom. 

The Comprehensive Learning Program is DECA's approach to preparing students exploring five industries: entrepreneurship, marketing, management, finance, and hospitality. 

We do this through college, business, and educational partnerships, competitive events, publications, student and school recognition, conferences, and community service activities.
