Six students from the Huntsman School of Business participated in the National DECA Competition, held in Baltimore Maryland, and one student won first place in the Fashion Marketing and Management event.
Students from nearly every major university in the country attend the National DECA competition. The Utah State University team included Sophie Baker, Kaden Bunch, Emerald Spencer, Natalie Waite, Josie Mutchler, and Christine Glover. Sophie Baker won first place in the Fashion Marketing and Management event and Emerald Spencer and Kaden Bunch were both finalists for the Entrepreneurship- Starting a Business event.
“Just qualifying for the event and competing is a great accomplishment,” said advisor Alex Romney, Assistant Professor, Department of Marketing and Strategy. “The International Collegiate DECA Conference (ICDC) provided our students an invaluable experience to hone their presentation skills and analyze real-world business cases. In competing against university students from across the world, our students admirably represented the Huntsman School of Business.”
The Collegiate DECA Competitive Events Program is recognized for helping to prepare students for their professional careers. Students are judged by business and industry professionals in all Collegiate DECA competitive events.
