Keiser University’s Flagship Campus was pleased to host Distributive Educators Club of America (DECA) students from Palm Beach County high schools as they competed in the regional DECA competition.

Over 500 students and their advisors from more than 5 area schools participated in business-themed competitions such as Individual Series, Team Decision-Making and more.

With research beginning months in advance, students prepared to compete in scenarios focusing on the analyzation and creation of business marketing plans, the development of new business ventures, existing business expansion, and more.

“We were delighted to spearhead this effort and welcome such a dedicated group of high school students to campus,” said Jeffrey Greenip, the Keiser University Flagship Campus’ Director of Enrollment Management and Admissions. “Many of the students were discovering our Flagship Campus for the first time, and were excited to learn about our many programs in business, hospitality, and health sciences as well as our student life and athletic opportunities,” he said.

With a rich history, DECA has impacted the lives of more than ten million students, educators, school administrators and business professionals since it was founded in 1946. Their strong connection with our organization has resonated into a brand that people identify as a remarkable experience in the preparation of emerging leaders and entrepreneurs.
